Go 1.2 Release Candidate 1 released ¶
This week’s article will be very short. Why? Because the first release candidate of Go 1.2 has been released! And because that release includes a list of all changes – many of which I have covered before as well as all the ones I haven’t yet – there is little point to reiterating them all again here.
The following sections will be of special interest to you, since they cover changes I haven’t talked about yet.
- Use of nil,
- test coverage,
- indexed arguments in
- Compiler and linker changes
- many minor changes
With the first release candidate released and Go in a feature freeze, there will probably not be any interesting changes to cover until Go 1.2. That’s why I will probably not be releasing any articles for the weeks to come, unless there are interesting changes beyond normal bug fixes.
Thanks for sticking with me for the past few weeks and see you once Go tip becomes exciting again!
