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.

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.
