Build highlights

  • Build: EAP 12, 172.3757.46
  • Released: Aug 11, 2017
  • Release notes

Major new features:

  • Inline refactoring for variables (Ctrl+Alt+N or Cmd+Alt+N for macOS)
  • A new Inspection that checks range clauses
  • The Go Application Run Configuration now supports running directories
  • Navigation between tests and their test subjects via Go to Test/Test Subject (Ctrl+Shift+T or Shift+Cmd+T for macOS)

Notable bugs addressed:

  • The Windows installer wasn't signed
  • Incorrect type comparison for structs with included pointer-type structures
  • The Project Wizard didn't allow to create projects with no SDK specified
  • Incorrect cache invalidation
  • Incorrect type aliases highlighting
  • A Debugger related issue (solved by updating to a newer Delve version)
  • The IDE didn’t resolve "vendored" libraries located under GOPATH in some cases

For more details, read the blog post.

We’ve changed the way Gogland indexes libraries inside GOPATH: non-Go files are now ignored, which, depending on your workspace, might make indexing up to twice as fast.

The refactorings family now includes two more members: Extract a Constant and Inline a Constant.

Annoying issues fixed:

  • Create Function quick-fix sometimes created functions in a wrong source package
  • The binary wasn’t retained in the output directory after the Run Configuration finished
  • The Debugger stuck on Evaluating when after clicking View to see full content of a variable
  • VCS commits occurring before the Go fmt option (in the Before Commit section) has finished its work

Also, the update brings the new platform features from IntelliJ Platform 2017.2.
