A Rationale for Using Coroutines in Go — Many of the initial reactions to this suggestion by Russ Cox to introduce coroutines to Go were negative, with folks instead preferring Go’s existing channels based approach for the problems coroutines can solve. Nonetheless, there are some interesting and specific use cases for coroutines in Go, such as when iterating over generic collections, and Russ tries to convince us of their merit here. Luckily, it's all possible "without language changes".

govulncheck 1.0 Released — We featured Go’s new vulnerability management tool last year when Julie Qiu gave an overview of the project. Now she’s back with a release ready to put into production. It statically analyzes your code and uses the Go Vulnerability Database to highlight relevant, known vulnerabilities.

The Gorilla (Project) ReawakensGorilla is/was a suite of packages for building Go webapps (Mux remains a popular HTTP router option) but the packages sadly went into an “archive only” mode last year. A team of developers is in the early stages of resurrecting the project – watch this space.

Analyzing Go Build Times — Go’s compiler is pretty quick, but John was curious was what factors affect compile times. In this article he used the 350,000 lines of the Istio project to put Go through its paces, try out some ideas, and ultimately came up with some tips.
