  • A list of all issues and changes can be found in the v0.36.0 milestone and commit history.

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changes

    • ๐Ÿš€ From this release, the extension will download specific versions of 3rd party tools installed with the "Go: Install/Update Tools" command. This is to enhance stability and security. The "Go: Install/Upate Tools" command will present the versions the extension will install. To install a different version of a tool, use go install command from the terminal instead. (Issue 1850)
    • ๐Ÿš€ The default gopls version was updated to v0.10.1 and the settings were updated accordingly. See the release note of gopls v0.10.0 to learn about notable changes and new features.
    • Typing vars will now offer a completion snippet that expands it to a var (...) block containing multiple variables. (PR 2481)
    • ๐Ÿš€ The setting to enable the "references" codelens, go.enableCodeLens.references, is now hidden. The feature remained broken for a while, so we plan to remove it in a future release. Please see Issue 2509 for details.
    • โœ… When debugging tests, the extension will open the "Debug Console". (Issue 2409)

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed Issue 2525 that prevented triggering of parameter hints after method autocompletion. Users can enable/disable this parameter hints popup with the "editor.parameterHints.enabled" setting.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed test profie feature (CL 440530).
    • โœ‚ Removed dev dependency affected by CVE-2022-3517.
