VSCode Native script – Don't recognise breakpoints


I’m using native script angular in vscode with nativescript extension.
When I try to debug the application (ios) it doesn’t stop in the breakpoints and the editor doesn’t recognise the breakpoint.

In the debug console I can see the following messae "Error when trying to require webpack.config.js file from path ‘/Users/raulvaldoleiros/vscode-workspaces/ns-ng-course/webpack.config.js’. Error is: TypeError: host.onUnRecoverableConfigFileDiagnostic is not a function"

I also have uninstalled and installed webpack, added –debug-brk to arguments, executed ns migrate, created a new project from scratch and nothing seems to work.
