Generics

Report usage of a type parameter as a constraint

If you try to use a type parameter as a constraint, GoLand will show an error. 

Notable bug fixes

There are a couple of fixes in this build: 

GO-13066 – The “Type does not implement …” false-positive error has been fixed. 

GO-12405 – GoLand now detects attempts to use a normal type as a generic one. 

Overall, we’ve fixed 300+ generics-related bugs since November 2021.

User experience

Keyboard shortcut to change the font size 

For this release, we’ve resolved a long-standing feature request by introducing a keyboard shortcut that changes the font size everywhere in the editor. 

To increase the font size, press ⌃⇧Dot (Alt+Shift+Dot). To decrease it, press ⌃⇧Comma (Alt+Shift+Comma).

Editor 

New setting to control automatic parentheses insertion

We’ve added an option to choose whether you want the IDE to automatically insert parentheses on code completion or not. The setting was previously available for JavaScript only, but now you can use it for Go and other languages, too. 

You will find the Insert parentheses automatically when applicable checkbox under Settings / Preferences | Editor | General | Code Completion.

Databases 

Option to import multiple CSV files

You can now select several CSV files and import them at once. 

To learn more about the database improvements in this EAP, take a look at this post from the DataGrip team.
