Golang 1.5, the most significant release since Go 1, features a completely redesigned garbage collector that makes the language more suitable for latency-sensitive applications; it marks the transition from a C-based compiler tool chain to one written entirely in Go; and it includes ports to new architectures, with better support for ARM processors (the chips that power most smartphones). These improvements make Go better suited to a broader range of tasks, a trend that we hope will continue over the coming years.

Improvements to tools continue to boost developer productivity. The execution tracer and the “go doc” command was introduced, as well as more enhancements to our various static analysis tools. On official Go plugin for Sublime Text is also in the pipeline, with better support for other editors in the pipeline.
