What’s next: GoLand 2018.3 roadmap

Two weeks ago we released GoLand 2018.2, and just four days ago its more polished version – GoLand 2018.2.1. There’s a lot of goodies inside such as support for Go modules (vgo), an upgraded Move refactoring, new quick-fixes, Postfix Completion templates and Intention Actions, as well as a better debugger.

Now it’s time to take a peek into the future of GoLand. We invite you behind the scenes, to our kitchen where we cook up new things for you. We’d like to make it a tradition.

To make it even more enjoyable, we will not only share our plans for GoLand, but we’ll also reward our evaluators. We’re talking about people who share their product experience, feedback and suggestions, helping us deliver an even better IDE with each release and EAP build.

Today, we’re saying thanks to these wonderful folks:

  • Sergey Savenko (YouTrack username: Deadok22)
  • Sergej Zagursky (YouTrack username: g7r)
  • Dmitry Zaknov (GolangRussian Slack username: wash)

As a token of our gratitude for your generous contribution of time and energy, we present each of you with a free 1-year subscription for GoLand (to extend your current subscription or start a new one). You will receive an email with a coupon code and instructions on how to claim it.

As things go in kitchens, some dishes take longer to prepare well than others. So please note we can’t guarantee that all of the features listed below will be included in GoLand 2018.3.
