The team behind Go has released version 1.13 of the network-friendly language. That means it’s time for us to release it, too.
If you’re running Go on Platform.sh, you can now upgrade to the new 1.13 release with one character change. Update your
.platform.app.yaml file like so:
And your next
git push will build with Go 1.13. Easy peasy.
Go tends to be extremely stable on version upgrades, so we recommend this upgrade to all Go-using customers. And if you’re not a Go-using customer, this is a good opportunity to Go give it a try.
Go releases tend to not have dramatic new features, but there are still some improvements worth noting.
0b1101is the binary number
1101(aka 13 for human counters).
1_000_000is a legal way to write the integer for 1 million.
See the Go 1.13 release notes for the full details.
