Pre-installed golang version behind latest release #2879
I'm trying to test my code against the latest version of golang because when I do a deployment, I'm going to deploy using the latest version of golang in my docker build. As go pushes out releases, I always want to have the latest version.
Previously, I'd use chocolatey to install the latest version of golang as part of my ci script. It worked great, after a golang release was out, it would be a day or so and I'd get the updated version. After some recent changes to AppVeyor, the ci servers are coming with golang pre-installed. Cool! But it seems that the versions are lagging behind golang's releases. (and chocolatey's too which is how I found this out). This is a problem b/c now my ci script isn't going to be testing against the latest golang version which it will be deployed with.
I understand there will always be some delay between golang releasing and it being installed on the appVeyor servers. I probably could re-organize my ci workflow to work around this issue. But this used to work without any special effort on my part and I'd like to keep it that way.
Great that there's a workaround, but I don't want to have to deal with this every time there's a new golang release. Especially since problem was very easily solved before appVeyor started having golang pre-installed
