Go Advent Day 2 - Go 1.2 performance improvements
Introduction 7 months, 1600 changes, well over 350 issues closed¹, and Go 1.2 is done. Go and install it now – it’s ok, it only takes a few minutes – I’ll wait. When Go 1.1 was released earlier in the year I did a series of posts (part 1, part 2, part 3) exploring the performance improvements the then current released provided. Go 1.1 was a herculean development effort, stretching some 14 months, and it brought with it equally impressive performance improvements.
