    yeah, he was tired of maintaining it and also there was open dialog about closing his own project, so it seems pretty reasonable. i'm sure there is further correspondence with the creator of the original plugin, but for the most part it seems like he didn't want to maintain it anymore and was happy to see MS incorporate his idea

    The original developer doesn't sound too worried and seems to have collaborated on the feature: https://github.com/CoenraadS/Bracket-Pair-Colorizer-2/issues...

    Plus it helps him getting rid of 399 open issues.

    However, the most recently created issue with a discussion seems to be CoenraadS/Bracket-Pair-Colorizer-2#436 which is from 7 days ago, and the most recent issue is from 2 days ago, so I figure the repo must have been archived since then.

    It works mostly, but there are still a few bugs, such as escaped brackets in Python's f-strings not working, as noted in CoenraadS/Bracket-Pair-Colorizer-2#156 (the issue I was originally looking up).

    Which commit are you referring to? As far as I can tell, the last one was made almost a year ago, so it seems like the extension has been abandoned for quite a long time. I have no idea why exactly it happened, probably because the developer lost interest in maintaining it. Worth noting is that there's a feature request for adding bracket pair colorization to VS Code (microsoft/vscode#96899), which has been backlogged.
