Go Playground: version parameter in shared URLs

In the 2022.3 version we integrated the Go Playground functionality into GoLand.

In this new build, we’ve added some improvements to that feature. First of all, shared URLs now include the version parameter if you choose the dev or previous versions. 

We’ve also added an option to turn off the popup window that asks your permission to share code in the Playground. It’s enabled by default.

We’ve also fixed a number of other issues related to the Go Playground: GO-13699, GO-13701, and GO-13737

Improvements in the new UI

We are continuing to work on our new UI, which you can enable in Settings | Appearance & Behavior | New UI (Beta). Thanks to your feedback, we’ve now been able to add some further enhancements. 

Redesigned Run widget

We’ve redesigned the Run widget that you see at the top of the IDE window. With the icons now colored green – rather than the area around them being blocked out in color – the appearance is subtler and easier on the eyes.

Show Hidden Tabs is back

We’ve added the Show Hidden Tabs feature in the new UI. Next to the open tabs, you now have a drop-down showing the complete list of open tabs, as they may have been hidden before.

That’s it for today. 

We’d love to hear what you think about the new features. Get in touch with us on Twitter, leave your comments here, open an issue in our tracker, or drop us a message in the Gophers Slack #goland channel.
