This Beta build includes new features as well. Let’s take a look!

Vulnerability checker

GoLand can now analyze your codebase and highlight known vulnerabilities.

The IDE highlights packages with known vulnerabilities in go.mod. You can hover over the highlighted code or press Alt+Enter (⌥ ↩) and choose Show vulnerability info for …, and GoLand will show you a list of vulnerabilities with links to the detailed description. The data about vulnerabilities is provided by the software security company Checkmarx.

GoLand also highlights method calls from packages with known vulnerabilities right in your editor. You can hover over highlighted code and see a popup with information about the vulnerability and a link to the detailed description.

There’s also the new Dependency Checker tool window. You can access it via View | Tool Windows | Dependency Checker or Code | Analyze Code | Show Vulnerable Dependencies.

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. Thanks!
