Visual Studio Code 1.7 overloaded npmjs.org, release reverted

1.7 Rollback
2 November 2016: Unfortunately, we needed to roll back the 1.7 release of VS Code. One of the great new features in 1.7 is the automatic acquisition of typing files when writing JavaScript and TypeScript. These typings files drive the IntelliSense (code completions) experience in VS Code. The feature was so great that we started to overload the npmjs.org service. The right thing to do in the short term was to revert the release.
If you had already upgraded to 1.7, you would have been prompted to install another update and you should now be at 1.6.1 again. We apologize for this inconvenience and we’re working hard to make both short and long term fixes to bring you a great editing experience in VS Code. You should expect to see a 1.7.1 release early next week.
1.6.1 Recovery Build
We are releasing a 1.6.1 recovery build to add the final 1.6 translations
