22 November 2018   373

Team JetBrains introduced a new version of IDE GoLand 2018.3. In this update, users will see:

  • refactoring by changing the signature;
  • memory dump;
  • Testify support;
  • new debugger tools;
  • Improved verification, prediction and code completion;
  • chart support;
  • updates for VCS, Docker, Kubernetes.

The new method of processing the code Change Signature will allow a single action to change the signature of functions and methods throughout the workspace. The function will show what will change in the code after application. The Inline tool will highlight the embedded code, and Rename will notify you of possible conflicts when renaming.

Added the ability to run and debug Google App Engine applications locally.

Go memory dumps are now available via Run / Open Core Dump directly in the IDE. To automatically create memory dumps, you need to enter GOTRACEBACK = crash in the Environment field.

Also, GoLand 2018.3 supports the Mozilla debugger rr, which allows you to search for a crash in the program by playing back its execution.

The previous version of GoLand 2018.2 was released in July 2018.
