    ๐Ÿ”„ Changes

    • Require VS Code engine 1.59+.
    • โœ… Implement the Testing API (Issue 1579). <!-- CL 330809 --> โœ… The test provider discovers all Go tests and benchmarks including stretchr test suits (Issue 1641) <!-- CL 343489 --> and sub-tests (Issue 1641). <!-- CL 343433 --> You can adjust behavior with the go.testExplorer.* settings.
    • โœ… Offer basic profiling support through the testing API. (Issue 1685) <!-- CL 344149 -->
    • Debugging
      • Allow to connect to a Delve DAP server running on a different host using host and port launch properties. (Issue 1729) <!-- CL 346269 -->
      • Disabled check for active debug session (Issue 1710). <!-- CL 349596 --> This will allow to run multiple debug sessions simultaneously.
      • Disabled the go version check by supplying the --check-go-version=false delve flag (Issue 1716). <!-- CL 347562 --> This is to allow users of older versions of Go to debug using Delve DAP which requires Delve 1.6.1 or newer. If you need to use Delve 1.6.0 or older, please use the legacy debug adapter.
      • Fixed a legacy debug adapter's bug that broke remote debugging when breakpoints were set in irrelevant files. (Issue 1762) <!-- CL 348972 -->
      • Added the new FAQs section.
    • โœ‚ Removed tools version check hack that triggerred unnecessary warnings about go and tools version mismatch issues (Issue 1698). <!-- CL 349752 -->

    • Track the language server's restart history and include it in the automated gopls crash report (CL 344130).
    • Code Health
      • Use esbuild instead of webpack (Issue 1705). <!-- CL 343791 -->
      • Removed the temporary security workaround in favor of VS Code's Workspace Trust concept. <!-- CL 347690 -->
      • Updated the gopls settings documentation to reflect gopls/v0.7.2 settings.

    A list of all issues and changes can be found in the v0.27.0 milestone and commit history.

    โœจ Enhancements

    • ๐Ÿ“„ The new go.terminal.activateEnvironment ๐Ÿ‘ allows to prevent the extension from changing integrated terminal's environment variables. (Issue 1558, 1098) <!-- CL 336409 -->
    • ๐Ÿ”ง The Go: Locate Configured Go Tools ๐Ÿ— command prints the build information of detected tools. <!-- CL 337989 -->

    • โœ… The Go: Subtest At Cursor command prompts for subtest name if there is no subtest at cursor (Issue 1602). <!-- CL 333309 -->

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixes

    • Debugging
      • Setting the logOutput property without showLog: true does not break debugging any more. <!-- CL 335029 -->

      • Fixed a bug that broke Attach mode debugging using the legacy debug adapter if cwd is not set. (Issue 1608) <!-- CL 334111 -->
      • Made the dlv-dap mode ignore the port property. It was initially suggested as a temporary alternative to the remote debugging, but we decided to revisit the functionality for better remote debugging support. Use the debugServer property if you want to connect to a manually launched dlv dap server.

    Code Health

    • ๐Ÿ“Œ The version of dlv-dap is pinned to v1.7.1-0.20210804080032-f95340ae1bf9 and dlv-dap is marked as a required tool.
