Git Pull Before Checkout

VS Code introduced a feature to synchronize before switching branches:

Pull before checkout

This milestone we added a new setting, git.pullBeforeCheckout, to streamline the process of switching branches. When this setting is enabled, if there are no outgoing commits, we will pull from the remote and fast-forward the branch before checking it out.

"git.pullBeforeCheckout": true
