* Go 1.9 New Features
- compiler changes (parallel compiling)
- monotonic time
- typealias (type T1 = T2) and inline branches(?)
- "fused multiply and add" (FMA) To force the intermediate rounding, write float64(x*y) + z.
- By popular request, ./... no longer matches packages in vendor directories
- testing: way to list tests and benchmarks without running them
* Go 1.9 Minor changes to the library
- database/sql: Use a cached Stmt if available in Tx.Stmt. Prevents statements from being re-prepared each time Tx.Stmt is called.; Rows.Scan can now scan user-defined string types; The new DB.Conn method returns the new Conn type representing an exclusive connection to the database from the connection pool.
- encoding/csv: new field Reader.ReuseRecord for improved performance.
- sync.Mutex is now more fair. What?
- text/template: handling of empty blocks same behaviour as in Go 1.7
- math/bits: an integer bit twiddling library
- sync.Map a concurrent map with amortized-constant-time loads, stores, and deletes
- More details in the release notes
* Thanks!
