GoLand 2020.3 EAP #2 Is Out With Updates for Remote Debugging, Testing, and More
Hello there! New week – new Early Access build, and it’s packed with new features of course! Remember, you don’t need to wait for the official EAP announcements, as we regularly release nightly builds based on the latest development code. These nightly builds are only available via the Toolbox App.
You can get this EAP build through the Toolbox App, by downloading it from the website, or by using a snap package (for Ubuntu). Or update from right inside GoLand by selecting Automatically check updates for Early Access Program in Preferences / Settings | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings | Updates.
The EAP builds are free to use but expire within 30 days of the build date.

Kill processes during remote debug sessions
It is now possible to kill a process on a remote machine during a remote debug session if no reattach is required.
Code inspection for potentially unsafe uses of context cancellation
The context.CancelFunc not called code inspection checks that a ‘cancel’ function returned by
context.WithCancel (and similar functions) is called on all execution paths.
WithTimeout functions take a
Context (the parent) and return a derived
Context (the child) and a
CancelFunc. Calling the
CancelFunc cancels the child and its children, removes the parent’s reference to the child, and stops any associated timers. Failing to call the
CancelFunc leaks the child and its children until the parent is canceled or the timer fires.
