I just stumbled upon this presentation highlighting what is coming in Go 1.15:

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1veyF0y6Ynr6AFzd9gXi4foaURlgbMxM-tmB4StDrdAM/edit#slide=id.g550f852d27_228_0

The release of version 1.15 is scheduled for august.

What I'm really looking forward to is:

  • New linker
  • Smaller binaries
  • Embed tzdata with time/tzdata
  • Add testing.TB.TempDir
  • Add testing.T.Deadline
