Software update: Go 1.11.3 / 1.10.6




Go, also referred to as golang, is a programming language developed by Google and the open source community since 2007. The language is used by Cloud Flare , Google , Netflix and Uber . Go code can be compiled for Android, Linux, macOS, FreeBSD and Windows on i386, amd64 and ARM processor architectures. The syntax of Go is similar to that of C and similar programming languages, although there are also some notable differences. Go also offers the possibility for distributed programming, in which different processes are executed simultaneously. The team has released Go versions 1.11.3 and 1.10.6 with the following adjustments:
