Releasing this Beta means our Early Access Program is approaching the home stretch. We’ve stopped adding new features and are focusing on polishing everything.
The Beta is quite stable in comparison to our Early Access Program builds, but keep in mind there may still be some rough spots here and there.
Please note that this Beta build is the last build in the EAP train that does not require a subscription to use (if you are just looking to give GoLand a try). Betas are usually followed by a Release Candidate once we see that the build is good enough and that it’s ready to be installed on your machines.
For this upcoming release, we have focused on Go Modules support, and you might just be amazed at how many cool things we’ve added to help you have more fun working on this type of project!
Another area of focus has been code-editing features that require little to no interaction from the user. Many new types of code completion are waiting for you to try.
On top of that, there are new code inspections, quick-fixes, and other nice things, such as a new mode that lets you open a file in the text editor without creating or loading a project. Intelligent spelling and grammar checks are now bundled by default via the Grazie plugin. And all of our IDEs, including GoLand, now feature our own typeface, JetBrains Mono, as the default font. (In fact you’ve already seen some of it as we’ve been using this font in all our screenshots and GIFs for a while now.)
Now is a great time to provide feedback! We love hearing from you, and we’re always listening, so don’t think twice about sounding off.
Without further ado, let’s have a look at what’s lurking inside the upcoming release. Choose a topic you are interested in, or go through the whole blog post to learn about each new feature.
