GoLand 2018.2 Beta: vgo, Move, Quick-fixes, Postfix Completion, debugger, VCS, and More

We are happy to announce that GoLand 2018.2 Beta is now available to try!
You can already try features that are coming in the next major version. Compared to the updates we’ve made available over the last two months via our EAP program, the Beta is relatively stable, though it may still have bugs and other issues. If you’ve been following our news, you’ve probably noticed we typically call this kind of update a ‘Public Preview’ – we’re no longer working on major changes but instead focusing on fixing bugs and polishing everything. Well, this Beta is exactly the same inside except we’ve applied the Rename refactoring :)


With naming issues cleared up, you are welcome to get this update working on your machine and try it out!

Let’s have a look closer at what this Beta has in store.

vgo integration support

Package management has long been a topic of interest for many people in the Go community. A few months ago, the Go team put forward a new tool, based on the learnings from dep and other package managers. This tool is called vgo, and it’s backed by a new dependency solving algorithm called Minimal Version Selection, or MVS. All of this is described in great detail in Russ Cox’s blog post series.

Given the importance of this tool, it’s easy to see how the request to integrate it with the IDE quickly became one of the most voted features.

Today we are happy to announce the first version this integration is available as a plugin for GoLand 2018.1.2+. This feature will be integrated by default in the upcoming 2018.2 release.

Debugging containerized Go applications

Containers are increasingly popular for deploying applications and Go applications make no exceptions from this. But how should we debug these applications that are running in the isolated environment a container offers?

For this, we turn back to the way we build these containers and include a copy of Delve, the Go debugger, and we adjust how we create/launch our application.

This release is an important milestone for our team as it’s the first massive update to the IDE since its launch four months ago.
