What is Go 1.17 and Why You Should Use It




Go 1.17 is the latest release of Go, which was released on August 16, 2021. It comes with several enhancements to the language, the toolchain, the runtime, and the libraries.


Go 1.17 Features and Improvements




Some of the main features and improvements of Go 1.17 are:


  • A new way of passing function arguments and results using registers instead of the stack, which improves performance and reduces binary size for amd64 platforms.



  • Support for the 64-bit ARM architecture on Windows (the windows/arm64 port), which allows running Go natively on more devices.



  • Pruned module graphs, which reduce the number of dependencies that need to be downloaded or read for modules that specify go 1.17 or higher in their go.mod file.



  • New functions in the unsafe package to make it easier to conform to the unsafe.Pointer rules: unsafe.Add for safer pointer arithmetic and unsafe.Slice for safer conversions of pointers to slices.



  • An extension to the language type conversion rules to allow conversions from slices to array pointers, provided the slice is at least as large as the array at runtime.



  • Verification improvements to crypto/x509, and alterations to URL query parsing.



Go 1.17 Compatibility and Requirements




As always, Go 1.17 maintains the , which means that almost all Go programs that work with previous versions of Go will continue to work with Go 1.17 without any changes.


However, there are some compatibility and requirements issues that you should be aware of before using Go 1.17:


  • Go 1.17 requires macOS 10.13 High Sierra or later; support for previous versions has been discontinued.



  • The new conversion from slice to array pointer is the first case in which a type conversion can panic at run time, which may affect some analysis tools that assume type conversions can never panic.



  • The main Go compiler does not yet support the LoongArch architecture, but it has reserved the GOARCH value "loong64".

After downloading Go 1.17 for your operating system, you need to install it on your computer. The installation process may vary depending on your system and preferences, but here are some general steps to follow:


Install Go 1.17 on Linux




If you downloaded the Go 1.17 binary distribution for Linux, you need to extract it to a location of your choice, such as /usr/local/go or /go.


You also need to add the bin subdirectory of the extracted location to your PATH environment variable, so that you can run the go command from anywhere.


You can do this by editing your /.profile or /.bashrc file and adding the following line at the end:


export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin # or /go/bin


Then, reload your profile or bashrc file by running:


source /.profile # or /.bashrc


Install Go 1.17 on Mac




If you downloaded the Go 1.17 installer for Mac, you just need to run it and follow the instructions on the screen.


The installer will install Go 1.17 in /usr/local/go and add it to your PATH environment variable automatically.


Install Go 1.17 on Windows




If you downloaded the Go 1.17 installer for Windows, you just need to run it and follow the instructions on the screen.


The installer will install Go 1.17 in C:\Go and add it to your PATH environment variable automatically.


How to Verify Your Go 1.17 Installation




To verify that Go 1.17 is installed correctly on your computer, you can open a terminal or command prompt and run the following command:


go version


This should print something like:


go version go1.17 linux/amd64 # or darwin/amd64 or windows/amd64


If you see an error message or a different version of Go, make sure that you have downloaded and installed Go 1.17 correctly and that your PATH environment variable is set properly.


How to Write and Run Your First Go Program with Go 1.17




To write and run your first Go program with Go 1.17, you need to create a file with a .go extension and write some code in it.


For example, you can create a file named hello.go and write the following code in it:


package main import "fmt" func main() fmt.Println("Hello, world!")


This is a simple Go program that prints "Hello, world!" to the standard output.


To run this program, you can use the go run command in the same directory as the hello.go file:


go run hello.go


This should print:


Hello, world!


Congratulations, you have written and run your first Go program with Go 1.17!
