Read below to learn what’s new or go ahead, download the EAP and give it a spin yourself. If you use Toolbox App, it already awaiting you there.
The GoLand team is recovering from the holidays, and we wish everyone who celebrates like us on Dec 31st/Jan 1st a very happy New Year!
Here’s some good news for you. Though with a bit of a slight delay, GoLand 2017.3.1 is finally here. This minor update fixes many of the bugs we were having, increases stability, and improves performance. Here’s a short list of the most notable changes.
The moment GoLand 2017.3 was released, our team started addressing the feedback you’ve been sharing with us. As we’re approaching GoLand 2017.3.1 (a minor update that brings lots of fixes), we’d like to remind you that its nightly builds are already available to try. Below is a quick introductory instruction on how to try GoLand nightly builds.
To switch the IDE to the “nightly” channel, go to Settings | Plugins, click Browse repositories, then click Manage repositories and make sure you’ve added “https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugins/nightly/9568” to the list of plugin repository URLs:
This way the IDE will be updated via the nightly versions of the Go plugin.
Keep in mind that the quality of nightly builds is usually below our normal standards and you may encounter many issues. On the plus side though, by using the nightly builds, you help us identify those possible issues in advance so we can fix them before the build goes GA.
If you’re using a nightly build and see an issue, please report it immediately to our issue tracker. We’re grateful for your support!

The Drive to Develop
It has always fascinated us to see how fast the developer industry is evolving. If you watch it long enough, you’ll see new products and technologies join a developer’s essential toolset every year. No matter how effective or efficient a programming language or framework is, an even better way of doing things is bound to be discovered or invented. With this diversity of technologies, it’s vital for us at JetBrains to keep improving the one thing that matters most: Developer Experience.
Last winter we announced we were building a new Go IDE on top of IntelliJ Platform which we codenamed Gogland. Today we’ve reached a special milestone and are happy to report that this IDE finally hits the market as GoLand and is available for download and purchase!
Hurray! A fresh GoLand EAP is now out. Continue reading
We’ve just published a fresh GoLand EAP build. Since we’re approaching the release date (roughly early December), we are now paying more attention to fixing important issues and the overall stability of the IDE. The published update comes with plenty of bugfixes. At the same time, the update includes several new features. Below are some details on some of them.
Yes, you read it right, it’s not a misprint: the final product name is now GoLand. We had to let the codename go and we’ll surely miss it. At the same time we hope everyone likes the new name. If you’re wondering what it takes to remove one letter from a product name, well… the short answer is “A lot.” For the long story, and the results of the naming contest, scroll to the end of this post.
At JetBrains we’re excited about GoLand the name as much as GoLand the new EAP build. The update brings some important improvements. Continue reading
