The latest production release is Prism for AL 2.4.0 SE.
Performance Tip: For optimal graph loading performance, please review your anti-virus path exceptions. The exclusion paths were changed in preview version 1.9.0 due to heavy file activity during graph building.
Need a trial license? After download and installation, get your trial license via Prism's control panel.

Visual Studio Code Extension
Local application data file performance and anti-virus programs
When Prism for AL meets a package for the first time,
the individual source files are cached in the file system. Likewise, Prism for AL uses
the file system heavily when generating a code graph. Anti-virus programs can
slow down these processes significantly, so you may consider excluding Prism for AL's local application data path
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Statical\PrismAL and/or a corresponding MSIX virtualized path)
from being scanned.
No matter which anti-virus program you are using, please use Prism for AL's Help | Optimize Prism Package Cache Performance menu to copy to clipboard a PowerShell script that excludes Prism's local application data paths from Windows Defender. You need to run the script as administrator. If you use a different anti-virus program, you can read the paths to exclude in the script.
