JetBrains has released a Go IDE built on top of the IntelliJ Platform, and changed its name from Gogland to GoLand. The new IDE adds coding assistance and integration for Go on IntelliJ in a similar way to PyCharm for Python or IntelliJIDEA for Java.

JetBrains rebuilt the go-lang-idea-plugin, the open-source initiative, from the ground up to provide:

"a more stable, extensible and feature-rich development experience".

according to a post on the JetBrains blog when the beta version was first announced last year. GoLand provides code completion, navigation, refactoring and Go code formatting.  There's a code editor that offers parameter hints and that shows syntax highlighting to make code more understandable, with on-the-fly inspections and quick-fixes.

In addition to Go-specific in-editor coding assistance, the IDE has a built-in test runner, test coverage, and a debugger. Other integrated tools include support for Git, Docker, databases, and a terminal. GoLand supports front-end development with dedicated coding assistance for JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Vue.js, and Angular.

One downside about the new release is that while it improves the coding environment for users of IntelliJ Ultimate (where the new IDE is included), those using other editions of IntelliJ no longer have access to the old Go plugin from within IntelliJ. According to JetBrains, this isn't related to the release of GoLand, but instead is due to the overall 2017.3 updates, which were made to many JetBrains tools, including IntelliJ IDEA, WebStorm, CLion, and PyCharm.

Users who upgraded their corresponding IDE to the released version lost the Go plugin. The fact this would happen had been mentioned in a blog post last month, which said that the move:

"aligns with our general IDE approach: PyCharm for Python, RubyMine for Ruby, etc., and GoLand for Go"

The new release is available for download on the JetBrains site.
