The development team from JetBrains introduced a new version of the IDE for the Go programming language - GoLand 2018.2. A large summer update brought support for individual Go-modules, improved Move-refactoring, new Postfix templates and an improved debugger.
GoLand 2018.2 Features:
- Integration with separate Go-modules (vgo) is available.
- Move-refactoring has received a new dialog box that indicates whether or not to use the identifier, as well as the ability to move characters between packets.
- There are new tools for rapid error correction: one for converting the value to the required type depending on the language requirements and the second, adding the missing methods.
GoLand tools for rapid error correction
- Implement Methods now allows not only add new methods through the interface, but also quickly create new ones.
GoLand Implement Methods
- Added new Postfix templates
.rr. The latter combines the two already available templates .rre and .rrv.
GoLand Postfix Templates
- The updated debugger allows you to set a stop point by monitoring the log in the console, and also tracing the stack at the reached point and then continuing to execute the code.
GoLand updated debugger
- Updated Docker-plugin.
- Added support for TypeScript 2.9 and the future release of TypeScript 3.0.
- Implemented tracking of unused parts of the code.
The previous version, GoLand 2018.1, was released in late March 2018. This was the first large-scale update of the new IDE, and changes in it mainly concerned the support for writing code and integrating the environment with other tools.
