[ISSUE] CMD-SHIFT-B flash locally dfu wrong address?

Using VS Code 1.29.1 on OSX High Sierra with the alpha4 of the preview I am trying to flash a Boron locally. The following happens. Looks to me like the address to dfu-util are wrong. Is there some config bit I am missing in VSC?

dfu-util -d 0x2B04:0xD006 -a 0 -s 0x80A0000:leave -D /Users/tahoemph/src/personal/first/target/first.dfu
dfu-util 0.9

Currently there is no official support for mesh devices in Workbench, hence the flash task doesn’t know how to flash them correctly (e.g. dfu-util -d 0X2B04:0xD006 denotes Photon rather than Boron, which would be :0xD00D) .
But official mesh support is planned.

For the time being you can flash via CLI particle flash --usb <binary.bin> (also from Workbench’s integrated console).

Ah, thank you. I missed that.
