Welcome to the GoLand 2020.1 Early Access Program!
The GoLand 2020.1 Early Access Program is starting. For this release, we are focusing on ease of use, performance, and reducing time wasted on boilerplate code and redundant actions in the IDE. We have also included nifty upgrades for Go Modules support, and more. You can find a brief description of what’s to come in the roadmap blog post for 2020.1. You can get it via the Toolbox App, download from the website, or use a snap package (for Ubuntu). Or, right in GoLand, select Automatically check updates for Early Access Program in Preferences / Settings | Appearance & Behavior | System
