1) proper dependencies management system (the new module system might address this) and
2) gener... nah, just kidding -- actually null protection. I don't want to see another segfault or null pointer failure ever again.
If it had these two features, I'd probably stop toying around with Rust and Crystal and just use Go. Unfortunately, 2) is probably impossible without seriously breaking old code, and they're not gonna break old code.

What? Are they removing “godoc <pkg>”? I used that a lot as a man page. It’s especially useful when you don’t have internet access
Edit: it’ll still be available in `go doc`, just that `godoc` will only be a web server. https://tip.golang.org/doc/go1.11#godoc

I can see that the slides alone aren't self-explanatory in some points, for example with the random byte reading or gofmt. I'll make sure to link to the issues/CLs in the slides next time :)

That's a bit disturbing, since Go's test caching can be a bit of a nuisance. I did some quick Googling, but couldn't find an explanation.

Can someone explain how this is a feature?
