Open source project developed by a team at Google and many contributors from the open source community.

Gogland, a Go specialized integrated development environment received new version of Early Access.

What's new?

Main features and fixes:

  • Developers changed the way Gogland indexes libraries inside GOPATH: non-Go files are now ignored, which, depending on your workspace, might make indexing up to twice as fast.
  • the refactorings family now includes two more members: Extract a Constant and Inline a Constant
  • Create Function quick-fix sometimes created functions in a wrong source package
  • The binary wasn’t retained in the output directory after the Run Configuration finished
  • The Debugger stuck on Evaluating when after clicking View to see full content of a variable
  • VCS commits occurring before the Go fmt option (in the Before Commit section) has finished its work
  • Version Control
    • New Git Log actions: Revert and Reword.
    • The new settings let you customize rules applied to commit messages: a blank line between subject and
      body, and the maximum length. Also, there’s a quick fix and the Reformat action inside Commit Message.
    • Shelf tab has been reworked for better performance and ergonomics.
  • Find in Path
    • Preview panel now has a Gutter (a left-hand pane like that in the editor) with line
      numbers, navigation icons, and local change markers.
    • Search results from the same lines are now merged together.
  • Window 10 native UI
  • Improved HiDPI support
  • JavaScript & TypeScript
    • Parameter Hints and Type Info
    • Rearrange Code
    • Move refactoring (across ES6 modules)
    • CSS modules, better Webpack support, code coverage for Mocha, etc
  • The indexing process now can be paused, e.g. if you need your CPU power for an urgent task.
  • Excluding files from search results and indexing by a filename/directory pattern.

Go 1.12 programming language released, which is being developed by Google with the participation of the community as a hybrid solution combining high performance of compiled languages with such advantages of scripting languages as ease of writing code, speed of development and protection from errors. The project code is distributed under the BSD license.

These are main updates:

  • Native TLS 1.3 support. It is not enabled by default, it is necessary to set the option tls13=1 in the environment variable GODEBUG (package crypto / tls).
  • Improved module system support. Developers are preparing to include it by default in version 1.13.
  • Windows support on ARM architecture systems. For example, Go can now be used with Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 3 boards.
  • Improved compatibility with upcoming versions of macOS and iOS. The layer for making specific system calls is the libSystem library.

Get more information at official documents.

Starting with Go 1.13, support for macOS 10.10 "Yosemite" will be discontinued, as the minimum supported version of macOS will be 10.11 "El Capitan". The next release also plans to end support for the FreeBSD 10.x branch.
