1.16 - (December 29, 2017)

FEATURES:

  • Add g:go_doc_url to change the godoc server from godoc.org to a custom private instance. Currently only godoc -http instances are supported. [GH-1957].
  • New setting g:go_test_prepend_name (off by default) to add the failing test name to the output of :GoTest [GH-1578].
  • Support denite.vim for :GoDecls[Dir] [GH-1604].

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Add some standard snippets for vim-minisnip [GH-1589].
  • g:go_snippet_engine now defaults to automatic to use the first installed snippet engine it can find. [GH-1589].

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix compatibility with Vim version before 7.4.1546 [GH-1498].
  • Don't resize godoc window if it's already visible [GH-1488].

  • Fix behavior of terminal windows and resize terminal windows correctly for all valid g:go_term_mode values. [GH-1611].

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • Display a warning for Vim versions older than 7.4.1689. Older versions may still work, but are not supported. You can use let g:go_version_warning = 0 to disable the warning. [GH-1524].
  • g:go_autodetect_gopath is disabled by default, as support for vendor has been in Go for a while.
    Also change the implementation for g:go_autodetect_gopath; instead of manually setting it before every command it will now be set with the BufEnter event, and reset with the BufLeave event. This means that $GOPATH will be changed for all commands run from Vim. [GH-1461] and [GH-1525].
  • Update :GoFillStruct to check the current line (vs. the exact cursor position) for a struct literal to fill. To support this, fillstruct made backwards imcompatible changes. [GH-1607].

1.15 - (October 3, 2017)

FEATURES:

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • :GoAddTags and :GoRemoveTags now continue to process if there are malformed individual struct tags (run :GoUpdateBinaries to update gomodifiytags binary) [GH-1401]

  • :GoAddTags and :GoRemoveTags now shows a location list if there are malformed struct tags (run :GoUpdateBinaries to update gomodifiytags binary) [GH-1401]

  • Add folding of the package-level comment (enabled by default) and/or any other comments (disabled by default) [GH-1377]. [GH-1428].

  • Allow using :GoImpl on the type and struct parts too. Makes it a wee bit easier to use [GH-1386]

  • :GoDef sets the path of new buffers as relative to the current directory when appropriate, instead of always using the full path [GH-1277].

  • Syntax highlighting for variable declarations and assignments (disabled by default) [GH-1426] and [GH-1458].

  • Add support for :GoDecls[Dir] in unite.vim [GH-1391].

  • Add support for fzf.vim in GoDecls[Dir]. [GH-1437].

  • Support relative imports for :GoImpl [GH-1322].

  • A new g:go_list_type_commands setting is added to individually set the list type for each command [GH-1415]. As en example:

      let g:go_list_type_commands = {"GoBuild": "quickfix", "GoTest": "locationlist"}
    
  • Show unexpected errors better by expanding newlines and tabs [GH-1456].

  • :GoInstallBinaries and :GoUpdateBinaries can now install/update only the selected binaries (e.g. :GoUpdateBinaries guru golint) [GH-1467].

BUG FIXES:

  • :GoFmt now (again) uses locationlist to show formatting errors instead of quickfix. To change back to locationlist you can change it with the setting let g:go_list_type_commands = { "GoFmt": locationlist" } [GH-1415]

  • Include comments in import block when folding is enabled [GH-1387]

  • Fix opening definitions in tabs [GH-1400]

  • Fix accidentally closing quickfix window from other commands if :GoFmt or autosave format was called [GH-1407]

  • Fix entering into insert mode after for term mode in nvim [GH-1411]

  • When using :GoImpl on type foo struct{} it would work, but with:

      type foo struct{
      }
    

    or with a struct with fields, it would create the generated methods inside the struct [GH-1386]

  • :GoImpl output would include extra newline, and error would include trailing newline from shell command: vim-go: invalid receiver: "} *}"<00>. Fixed with [GH-1386]

  • Run :GoMetaLinter against the package of the open file [GH-1414].

  • The g:go_doc_command and g:go_doc_options to configure the command for :GoDoc were documented but never referenced [GH-1420].

  • go#package#FromPath() didn't work correctly [GH-1435].

  • Fix race condition for guru based commands [GH-1439].

  • The gohtmltmpl filetype now sources the html ftplugin, so that matchit, completion, and some other things work better. [GH-1442]

  • Fix :GoBuild shell escaping [GH-1450].

  • Ensure fmt list gets closed when title cannot be checked [GH-1474].

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • :GoMetaLinter now runs against the package of the open file instead of the current working directory. This is so all commands behave the same relative to the current open buffer. [GH-1414]

  • :GoImpl now requires impl version 3fb19c2c or newer (released June 13, 2017); use :GoUpdateBinaries to make sure that you've got a recent version [GH-1322]

1.14 - (August 6, 2017)

FEATURES:

  • We now have folding support based on Go syntax. To enable it you have to set the following Vim setting: set foldmethod=syntax. Currently it folds blocks ({ }), import, var, and const blocks, and package-level comments. These can be individually disabled/enabled if desired. For more info please read the documentation for the g:go_fold_enable setting. [GH-1339] [GH-1377]
  • :GoFiles accepts now an argument to change the type of files it can show. By default it shows.go source files but now it can be changed to show various kind of files. The full list can be seen via go list --help under the // Source Files section [GH-1372] i.e:
:GoFiles CgoFiles        // shows .go sources files that import "C"
:GoFiles TestGoFiles     // shows _test.go files in package
:GoFiles IgnoredGoFiles  // shows .go sources ignored due to build constraints

  • Fix picking up the correct list type for showing :GoFmt errors [GH-1365]
  • Fix auto detecting of GOPATH for import paths with string 'src' (i.e: GOPATH/src/github.com/foo/src/bar) [GH-1366]
  • Fix showing an empty window if gogetdoc was not found [GH-1379]
  • Fix commands not being executed if paths would include spaces (binary name, GOPATH, file itself, etc..) [GH-1374]
  • Fix showing correct message when editing a new file [GH-1371]
  • Fix filepaths in the quickfix list for :GoVet [GH-1381]
  • Run :GoLint against the package of the open file [GH-1382]

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • :GoFmt now uses quickfix to show formatting errors instead of locationlist. To change back to locationlist you can change it with the setting let g:go_list_type = "locationlist" [GH-1365]
  • :GoLint now runs against the package of the open file instead of the current working directory. This is so all commands behave the same relative to the current open buffer. For more info check the comment here [GH-1382]

1.13 - (June 6, 2017)

FEATURES:

  • New :GoKeyify command that turns unkeyed struct literals into keyed struct literals. [GH-1258]. i.e:

  • :GoDef jumps now to definition for build tags defined with :GoBuildTags (only guru) [GH-1319]

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • :GoLint works on the whole directory instead of the current file. To use it for the current file give it as an argument, i.e :GoLint foo.go [GH-1295]
  • go_snippet_case_type is removed in favor of the new go_addtags_transform setting [GH-1299]
  • go_imports_bin is removed to avoid confusion as it would lead to race conditions when set to gofmt along with the usage of go_fmt_command [GH-1212] [GH-1308]
  • commands such as :GoTest has been refactored for easy maintainability. If you use any custom script that was using the function go#cmd#Test, it should be renamed to go#test#Test

  • Set the filename in the location-list when there is an error with :GoFmt [GH-1199]
  • Fix :GoInstall to accept additional arguments if async mode was enabled [GH-1246]

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • The command :GoGuruTags is removed in favour of the new command :GoBuildTags. This command will be used now not just for guru, also for all new commands such as gorename [GH-1232]
  • The setting g:go_guru_tags is removed in favour of the new setting g:go_build_tags [GH-1232]

1.11 - (January 9, 2017)

FEATURES:

  • Travis test integration has been added. Now any file that is added as <name>_test.vim will be automatically tested in for every Pull Request (just like how we add tests to Go with _test.go). Going forward this will tremendously increase the stability and decrease the maintenance burden of vim-go. [GH-1157]
  • Add new g:go_updatetime setting to change the default updatetime (which was hardcoded previously) [GH-1055]
  • Add new g:go_template_use_pkg setting to enable to use cwd as package name instead of basic template file [GH-1124]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Add statusline support for :GoMetaLinter [GH-1120]
  • Quickfix and Location lists contain now a descriptive title (requires at least Vim 7.4.2200)[GH-1004]
  • Check go env GOPATH as well for :GoInstallBinaries as Go has now a default path for GOPATH ("~/go")starting with 1.8 [GH-1152]
  • :GoDocBrowser now also works on import paths [GH-1174]

BUG FIXES:

  • Always use full path to detect packages to be shown in statusline [GH-1121]
  • Use echom to persist errors in case of multiple echos [GH-1122]
  • Fix a race condition where a quickfix window was not closed if a job has succeeded [GH-1123]
  • Do not expand coverage arguments for non job execution of :GoCoverage [GH-1127]
  • :GoCoverage doesn't mess up custom syntax anymore [GH-1128]
  • Disable autoformat for asm files as they might be non Go ASM format [GH-1141]
  • Fix indentation broken when using a action with a minus sign like {{- [GH-1143]
  • Fix breaking Neovim change of passing less arguments to callbacks [GH-1145]
  • Fix guru commands if custom build tags were set [GH-1136]
  • Fix referencing a non defined variable for async commands when bang (!) was used
  • Fix :GoDef failing for a modified buffer if hidden was not set [GH-1132]
  • Fix :GoDefStack to allow popping from jump list when buffer is modified [GH-1133]
  • Improve internal defining of functions and referencing them for async operations [GH-1155]
  • Fix :GoMetaLinter failing if go_metalinter_command is set. [GH-1160]
  • Fix :GoMetaLinter's go_metalinter_deadline setting for async mode [GH-1146]

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • The following syntax options are now disabled by default. If you're using them be sure to set them in your .vimrc [GH-1167]
g:go_highlight_array_whitespace_error
g:go_highlight_chan_whitespace_error
g:go_highlight_extra_types
g:go_highlight_space_tab_error
g:go_highlight_trailing_whitespace_error

1.10 (November 24, 2016)

FEATURES:

  • Vim 8.0 support! This is the initial version to add Vim 8.0 based support to all basic commands (check out below for more information). With time we'll going to extend it to other commands. All the features are only enabled if you have at least Vim 8.0.0087. Backwards compatible with Vim 7.4.x. If you see any problems, please open an issue.

  • We have now a logo for vim-go! Thanks to @egonelbre for his work on this.

  • :GoBuild, :GoTest, :GoTestCompile, :GoInstall commands are now fully async. Async means it doesn't block your UI anymore. If the command finished it echoes the status. For a better experience use the statusline information (more info below)

  • :GoCoverage and :GoCoverageBrowser commands are fully async.

  • :GoDef is fully async if guru is used as command.

  • :GoRename is fully async .

  • :GoMetaLinter is fully asnyc. Also works with the current autosave linting feature. As a reminder, to enable auto linting on save either call :GoMetaLinterAutoSaveToggle (temporary) or add let g:go_metalinter_autosave = 1 (persistent) to your virmc).

  • All guru commands run asynchronously if Vim 8.0 is being used. Current Commands:

    • GoImplements
    • GoWhicherrs
    • GoCallees
    • GoDescribe
    • GoCallers
    • GoCallstack
    • GoFreevars
    • GoChannelPeers
    • GoReferrers
  • :GoSameIds also runs asynchronously. This makes it useful especially for auto sameids mode. In this mode it constantly evaluates the identifier under the cursor whenever it's in hold position and then calls :GoSameIds. As a reminder, to enable auto info either call :GoSameIdsAutoToggle(temporary) or add let g:go_auto_sameids = 1 (persistent) to your vimrc.

  • :GoInfo is now non blocking and works in async mode if guru is used in g:go_info_mode. This makes it useful especially for autoinfo mode. In this mode it constantly evaluates the identifier under the cursor whenever it's in hold position and then calls :GoInfo. As a reminder, to enable auto info either call :GoAutoTypeInfoToggle(temporary) or add let g:go_auto_type_info = 1 (persistent) to your vimrc. To use guru instead of gocode add following to your vimrc: let g:go_info_mode = 'guru'

    The guru is more accurate and reliabed due the usage of guru describe. It doesn't rely on pkg/ folder like gocode does. However it's slower than gocode as there is no caching mechanism in guru yet.

  • New: Statusline function: go#statusline#Show() which can be plugged into the statusline bar. Works only with vim 8.0. It shows all asynchronously called functions status real time. Checkout it in action: https://twitter.com/fatih/status/800473735467847680. To enable it add the following to your vimrc. If you use lightline, airline, .. check out their respective documentation on how to add a custom function:

" go command status (requires vim-go)
set statusline+=%#goStatuslineColor#
set statusline+=%{go#statusline#Show()}
set statusline+=%*

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • :GoDocBrowser is now capable to to understand the identifier under the cursor (just like :GoDoc)
  • Function calls are now highlighted as well when g:go_highlight_functions is enabled [GH-1048]
  • Add completion support for un-imported packages. This allows to complete even if the package is not imported. By default it's disabled, enable by adding let g:go_gocode_unimported_packages = 1 [GH-1084]
  • Tools that embeds GOROOT into their binaries do not work when people update their Go version and the GOROOT contains the vesion as part of their path (i.e: /usr/local/Cellar/go/1.7.2/libexec, more info) . This is now fixed by introducing automatic GOROOT set/unset before each tool invoke. [GH-954]
  • Added new setting g:go_echo_go_info to enable/disable printing identifier information when completion is done [GH-1101]
  • Added new go_echo_command_info setting is added, which is enabled by default. It's just a switch for disabling messages of commands, such as :GoBuild, :GoTest, etc.. Useful to disable if go#statusline#Show() is being used in Statusline, to prevent to see duplicates notifications.
  • goSameId highlighting is now linked to Search, which is much more clear as it changes according to the users colorscheme
  • Add plug mapping (go-lint) for :GoLint [GH-1089]

BUG FIXES:

  • Change back nil and iota highlighting color to the old type [GH-1049]
  • Fix passing arguments to :GoBuild while using NeoVim [GH-1062]
  • Do not open a split if :GoDef is used on a modified file [GH-1083]
  • Highlight nested structs correctly [GH-1075]
  • Highlight builtin functions correctly if g:go_highlight_functions is enabled [GH-1070]
  • Fix :GoSameIds highlighting if a new buffer is opened in the same window [GH-1067]
  • Internal: add abort to all vim function to return in case of errors [GH-1100]
  • Fix :GoCoverage to be executed if working dir is not inside the test dir [GH-1033]

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • remove vim-dispatch and vimproc.vim support. vim 8.0 has now the necessary API to invoke async jobs and timers. Going forward we should use those. Also this will remove the burden to maintain compatibility with those plugins.

  • go#jobcontrol#Statusline() is removed in favor of the new, global and extensible go#statusline#Show()

1.9 (September 13, 2016)

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • guru uses now the -modified flag, which allows us use guru on modified buffers as well. This affects all commands where guru is used. Such as :GoDef, :GoReferrers, etc.. [GH-944]
  • :GoDoc uses now the -modified flag under the hood (for `gogetdoc), which allows us to get documentation for the identifier under the cursor ina modified buffer. [GH-1014]
  • Cleanup and improve documentation [GH-987]
  • Add new g:go_gocode_socket_type setting to change the underlying socket type passed to gocode. Useful to fallback to tcp on cases such as Bash on Windows [GH-1000]
  • :GoSameIds is now automatically re-evaluated in cases of buffer reloads (such as :GoRename) [GH-998]
  • Improve docs about go_auto_sameids [GH-1017]
  • Improve error message by printing the full path if an incompatible goimports is being used [GH-1006]
  • iota and nil are now highlighted correctly and are not treated as booleans [GH-1030]

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix system calls on Windows [GH-988]
  • Fix :GoSameIds and :GoCoverage for light background and after changing color schemes [GH-983]
  • Fix TagBar and GoCallers for Windows user [GH-999]
  • Set updatetime for for auto_sameids feature as well [GH-1016]
  • Update docs about missing go_highlight_generate_tags setting [GH-1023]
  • Fix updating the jumplist if :GoDef is used [GH-1029]
  • Fix highlighting literal percent sign (%%) in strings [GH-1011]
  • Fix highlighting of nested fields [GH-1007]
  • Fix checking for exepath feature for the upcoming vim 8.0 release [GH-1046]

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • Rename GoMetalinterAutoSaveToggle to GoMetaLinterAutoSaveToggle to make it compatible with the existing :GoMetaLinter command [GH-1020]

1.8 (July 31, 2016)

FEATURES:

  • New :GoAddTags command that adds field tags for the fields of a struct automatically based on the field names. Checkout the demo to see it in action: https://twitter.com/fatih/status/759822857773907968 [GH-971]
  • The snippet expansion json is now much more smarter. It pre populates the placeholder according to the first word and it also applies snake_case or camelCase conversion. Together with :GoAddTags it gives vim-go users flexible ways of populating a field tag. Checkout the demo to see it in action: https://twitter.com/fatih/status/754477622042689536 [GH-927]
  • New :GoSameIds command. When called highlights all same identifiers in the current file. Can be also enabled to highlight identifiers automatically (with :GoSameIdsAutoToggle or g:go_auto_sameids). Checkout the demo to see it in action: https://twitter.com/fatih/status/753673709278339072. [GH-936]
  • New :GoWhicherrs command. It shows all possible values of the selected error variable. [GH-948]
  • Add new errp snippet to expand an if err != nil { panic() } clause [GH-926]
  • If you open a new buffer with a Go filename it get automatically populated based on the directory. If there are no Go files a simple main package is created, otherwise the file will include the package declaration line based on the package in the current directory. Checkout the demo to see it in action: https://twitter.com/fatih/status/748333086643994624. This is enabled by default. Can be disabled with let g:go_template_autocreate = 0. You can use your own template with let g:go_template_file = "foo.go" and putting the file under the templates/ folder. [GH-918]
  • Added new toggle commands to enable/disable feature that run for your automatic. For example if you have let g:go_auto_type_info = 1 enabled, you can now easily enable/disable it on the fly. Support added with the following commands: :GoAutoTypeInfoToggle, :GoFmtAutoSaveToggle, :GoAsmFmtAutoSaveToggle, :GoMetalinterAutoSaveToggle, :GoTemplateAutoCreateToggle [GH-945]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • :GoDoc accepts arguments now which are passed directly to godoc. So usages like :GoDoc flag works again (it was changed in previous versions [GH-894]
  • :GoDef works now for modified files as well [GH-910]
  • Internal: pass filename to the --srcdir flag to enable upcoming goimports features [GH-957]
  • Internal: fix indentations on all files to 2-spaces/no tabs. This is now the default vim-go style across all VimL files [GH-915]
  • Internal: autocmd settings can be now dynamically enabled/disabled [GH-939]
  • Internal: automatically detect GOPATH for :GoInstall [GH-980]
  • Internal: shell executions uses now by default sh and then resets it back to the user preference. [GH-967]
  • Syntax: improved syntax highglighting performance for methods, fields, structs and interface type declarations [GH-917]
  • Syntax: moved :GoCoverage highlight definition into go's syntax file for more customizability [GH-962]

BUG FIXES:

  • Escape # characters when opening URL's, as it's handled as alternative file in vim [GH-895]
  • Fix typos in doc/vim-go.txt about usages of syntax highglightings [GH-897]
  • Fix :GoCoverage not running for Neovim [GH-899]
  • Fix :GoFmt not picking up -srcdir if the command was set to use goimports [GH-904]
  • Fix :GoTestCompile to not leave behind artifacts if the cwd and the test files's directory do not match [GH-909]
  • Fix :GoDocBrowser to not fail if godoc doesn't exist [GH-920]
  • Fix :GoFmt to not change the permissions of saved file. Now original file permissions are restored [GH-922]

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • g:go_highlight_structs and g:go_highlight_interface are removed in favor of g:go_highlight_types [GH-917]

1.7.1 (June 7, 2016)

BUG FIXES:

  • Fixed typo in syntax/go.vim file from go:go_highlight_fields to g:go_highlight_fields

1.7 (June 7, 2016)

FEATURES:

  • New :GoImpl command that generates method stubs for implementing an interface. Checkout the demo to see how it works. [GH-846]
  • godef support is added back as an optional setting. By default :GoDef still uses guru, but can be changed to godef by adding the option: let g:go_def_mode = 'godef' [GH-888]
  • New <C-w><C-]> and <C-w>]> shortcuts to split current window and jumpt to the identifier under cursor. [GH-838]
  • New syntax setting" g:go_highlight_fields that highlights struct field references [GH-854]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Invoking :GoRename now reloads all files to reflect new changes automatically [GH-855]
  • Calling :GoTestCompile does not create any temporary binary file anymore [GH-879]
  • Enable passing the -tags flag to :GoDef. Now you can pass build tags to :GoDef via :GoGuruTags or g:go_guru_tags
  • Internal refactoring to use custom system() function that wraps both the standard system() call and vimproc. Now all system calls will take advantage and will use vimproc if installed. [GH-801]
  • Completion enables now gocode's autobuild and propose-builtins flags automatically. With these settings packages will be automatically build to get the freshest completion candidates and builtin keywords will be showed as well. By defaults these settings are enabled. Settings can be disabled/enabled via g:go_gocode_autobuild and g:go_gocode_propose_builtins. [GH-815]
  • Added new http.HandlerFunc snippets with hf and hhf shortcuts [GH-816]
  • Added new Example and Benchmark snippets with example and benchmark shortcuts [GH-836]
  • Search tool binaries first in GOBIN and then in PATH as most of vim-go users installs it to GOBIN mostly [GH-823]
  • Improve guru based commands by providing automatically detected GOPATHS, such as gb, godep to be used if possible [GH-861]
  • Add <Plug>(go-imports) mapping to make it assignable to other keys [GH-878]
  • Increase compatibility with tcsh [GH-869]
  • Improve :GoInstallBinaries for GOPATH's which don't have packages that work well with go get -u. We have a new g:go_get_update setting to disable it. By default it's enabled. [GH-883]

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix (go-freevars) plug mapping to work as in visual mode instead of noncompatible normal mode [GH-832]
  • Commands based on guru now shows a more meaningful error message instead of just showing the exit status (-1)
  • Fix :GoCoverage accidentally enabling syntax highlighting for users who don't use syntax (i.e syntax off) [GH-827]
  • Fix :GoCoverage colors to work for xterm as well [GH-863]
  • Fix commenting out block of texts for Go templates (filetype gothtmltmpl) [GH-813]
  • Fix :GoImplements failing because of an empty scope definition. Now we default to current package to make it usable.
  • Fix :GoPlay posting to non HTTPS url. [GH-847]
  • Fix escaping the filenames for lint and motion commands [GH-862]
  • Fix escaping the filename to :GoDef completely for tcsh [GH-868]
  • Fix showing SUCCESS for go test related commands if no test files are available [GH-859]

1.6 (April 25, 2016)

FEATURES:

  • New CHANGELOG.md file (which you're reading now). This will make it easier for me to track changes and release versions
  • :GoCoverage is now highlighting the current source file for covered/uncovered lines. If called again it runs the tests and updates the annotation. Use :GoCoverageClear to clear the coverage annotation. This is a pretty good addition to vim-go and I suggest to check out the gif that shows it in action: https://twitter.com/fatih/status/716722650383564800 [GH-786]
  • :GoCoverageToggle just like :GoCoverage but acts as a toggle. If run again it clears the annotation.
  • :GoCoverageBrowser opens a new annotated HTML page. This is the old :GoCoverage behavior [GH-786]
  • :GoDoc uses now gogetdoc to lookup and display the comment documentation for the identifier under the cursor. This is more superior as it support looking up dot imports, named imports and imports where package name and file name are different [GH-782]
  • guru support: oracle is replaced by the new tool guru. oracle.vim is therefore renamed to guru.vim. I've also refactored the code to make it much more easier to maintain and add additional features in future (such as upcoming JSON decoding). vim-go is now fully compatible with guru. Please be sure you have installed guru. You can easily do it with :GoInstallBinaries.
  • :GoDef uses now guru definition under the hood instead of godef. This fixes the following issues: 1. dot imports 2. vendor imports 3. folder != package name imports. The tool godef is also deprecated and not used anymore.
  • :GoDef does have now history of the call stack. This means you can easily jump back to your last entry. This can be done with the new command :GoDefPop or the mapping CTRL-t. To see the stack and jump between entries you can use the new command :GoDefStack, which shows the list of all stack entries. To reset the stack list anytime you can call :GoDefStackClear [GH-776]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • :GoCoverage is executed asynchronously when used within Neovim [GH-686]
  • :GoTestFunc supports now testable examples [GH-794]
  • :GoDef can jump to existing buffers instead of opening a new window (split, vsplit or tab). By default it's disabled to not break the old behavior, can be enabled with let g:go_def_reuse_buffer = 1

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix not showing documentation for dot, named and package/file name being different imports [GH-332]
  • Term mode: fix closing location list if result is successful after a failed attempt [GH-768]
  • Syntax: fix gotexttmpl identifier highlighting [GH-778]
  • Doc: fix wrong wording for go-run mapping. It's for the whole main package, not for the current file

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • :GoDef doesn't accept any identifier as an argument. This is not suported via guru definition and also was not widely used either. Also with this, we significantly simplified the existing def.vim code
  • :GoOracleScope and :GoOracleTags are deprecated in favor of :GoGuruScope and :GoGuruTags. Also g:go_oracle_scope is renamed to g:go_guru_scope
  • g:go_guru_scope accepts a variable in type of list instead of string. i.g: let g:go_guru_scope = ["github.com/fatih/structs", "golang.org/x/tools/..."]

1.5 (Mar 16, 2016)

FEATURES:

  • Introducing code name "motion". A new whole way of moving around and navigating [GH-765]. Checkout the following new changes:
    • A vim-go specific tool, called motion is being developed which provides us the underlying foundation for the following and upcoming new features.
    • ]] and [[ motions can be used to jump between functions
    • if and af are improved and implement from scratch. It has now support for literal functions, comments of functions, better cursor position support and more stable.
    • New :GoDecls and :GoDeclsDir commands that are available if ctrlp.vim is installed. Once called one can easily jump to any generic declaration available.
    • I wrote two blog posts about these new features in more detail. I recommend you to read it: Treating Go types as objects in Vim and Navigation between functions and types in vim-go
  • A new :GoAlternate command that toggles to the test file of the current file. It also has new appropriate mappings to open the alternate file in split or tabs. [GH-704]
  • Now commands can choose whether they want to open a quickfix or a location list via the setting g:go_list_type. Also all the commands have now some sensible settings, some will open a qf window, some will open a location list [GH-700]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Add support for goimport's new -srcdir. Goimports now succesfully suports vendor/ folders with this release. [GH-735]
  • Add g:go_gorename_prefill setting which disabled pre filling the argument for :GoRename [GH-711]
  • Improve :GoRun to complete to filenames [GH-742]
  • Highlight //go:generate comment directives [GH-757]
  • Indent code in Go HTML templates [GH-709]
  • Improve negative numbers of all types, octals, imaginary numbers with exponents [GH-752]
  • Improved internal usage of retrieving offsets [GH-762]
  • Improve by substitute all backslashes to slashes for filename [GH-703]
  • Improve internal Go package path function [GH-702]
  • Improved typo and grammar errors in docs [GH-714]
  • Improved internal :GoInfo automatic call [GH-759]

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix oracle scope not working if trailing slash exists in scope [GH-751]
  • Fix :GoErrCheck checking abspath [GH-671]
  • Fix :GoInstall correctly parsing errors [GH-692]
  • Fix :GoInstall correctly parsing errors [GH-692]
  • Fix :GoTestFunc for neovim [GH-695]
  • Fix :GoRun accepting arguments for neovim [GH-730]
  • Fix go run mappings not working [GH-542]
  • Fix autodetect gopath picking up non existing GB vendor folder
  • Fix gofmt errors showing per buffer instead of per script [GH-721]
  • Fix some of the neosnippet snippets

1.4 (Jan 18, 2016)

FEATURES:

  • You waited for it for a long time. And here you have it: Neovim support! This is a huge feature. It's fully compatible with Vim and kicks only in if vim-go is being used within Neovim. Checkout the full list of changes [GH-607]:
    • An async launcher and base foundation was implemented for the go command. This will be used in the future for all upcoming subcommands of the go tool.
    • :GoBuild is now called asynchronously (it doesn't block the UI anymore).
    • A new go#jobcontrol#Statusline() can be used to plug into the statusline. This will show the status of the job running asynchronously. The statusline is improved to show the status per package instead of file. Assume you have three files open, all belonging to the same package, if the package build (:GoBuild) is successful, all statusline's will be empty (means SUCCESS), if it fails all files statusline's will show FAILED.
    • :GoRun opens a new vertical terminal emulator inside Neovim and runs the command there. The terminal mode can be changed with g:go_term_mode, which is by default vsplit. Current options are vsplit, split or tab. We also have three new mappings to open :GoRun command in different terminal split modes: <Plug>(go-run-vertical), <Plug>(go-run-split) and <Plug>(go-run-tab)
    • :GoTest, :GoTestFunc and :GoTestCompile opens and runs in a new terminal. The view mode (split,vertical, tab) is defined with g:go_term_mode. The g:go_term_enabled setting can be use to change the behavior of :GoTestXXX commands .If set to 1, it opens the test commands inside a terminal, if not it runs them in background just like :GoBuild and displays the result in the statusline.
    • We have two settings for terminal sizes: g:go_term_height and g:go_term_width. By default a vertical or horizontal view is equally splitted by vim automatically. However with these settings we can for example have a terminal with a smaller height when we split it horizontally.
    • If a command inside the term fails (such as go run, go test ...) we parse now the errors and list them inside a location list.
  • Instead of quickfix window, vim-go now uses the location list feature of Vim. These are associated with each window independently of each other. This enables us to have multiple, independent location lists per window (example usages: :GoBuild with errors that needs to be fixed, :GoLint with warnings that we want to check, :GoReferrers with a list of referred identifiers) [GH-626]
  • a new :AsmFmt command which is integrated to work with asmfmt [GH-673]
  • the full identifier information of a completed identifier is echoed in statusline. This is very useful to see a function signatures arguments. [GH-685]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Improve :GoFmt by checking if the binary is indeed installed on the system [GH-617]
  • Improve :GoMetaLinter by adding the option to run the metalinter on save and adding the option to limit the output to the currently active buffer. Set let g:go_metalinter_autosave = 1 to enable autosave and use let g:go_metalinter_autosave_enabled = ['vet', 'golint'] to change your options. [GH-631]
  • Improved :GoDef. If vimproc is installed godef will make use of it [GH-670]
  • Improve completion of godoce when vimproc is used [GH-620]
  • Improve internal error matching prodecure to not match false positives [GH-618]
  • A new option to highlight interface variables with go_highlight_interfaces [GH-681]

BUG FIXES

  • Fix :GoFmt changing the fileformat of the current buffer [GH-615]
  • Fix :GoRename to output the original error if parsing fails [GH-675]
  • Fix :GoTest to output the original error if parsing fails [GH-676]
  • Fixed fmt.Fprintln not to highlight as builtin [GH-628]
  • Fixed wrong highlighting of channels of channels [GH-678]

1.3 (Nov 22, 2015)

FEATURES:

  • A new :GoOracleTags command was added to pass build tags to Oracle's -tags flag. [GH-573]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Change :GoTest command to timeout after 10 seconds. Vim UI is blocking and tests with large running times makes Vim blocking for a long time. This is also customizable with the new option g:go_test_timeout. [GH-578]
  • Improve :GoRename to collect and populate quickfix window with errors. [GH-577]
  • Improve :GoRun by dropping bad filenames from quickfix window. This allows us to have only valid entries which can be jumped to [GH-547]
  • Improve :GoMetaLinter quickfix output by using absolute paths. This enables us to jump to errors for all cases. [GH-565]
  • Improve :GoMetaLinter command by adding a new option g:go_metalinter_deadline which cancels the linters after 5 seconds (previous default). [GH-576]
  • Improve :GoMetaLinter by jumping to the first encountered error from the quickfix window.
  • Automatically resize quickfix window based on the number of errors [GH-602]
  • Improve build constraints to show invalid cases (such as // +buildfoo, not having an empty line between the package statement, etc..). Also add missing GOARCH values sucha s arm64. There are many other useful improvements, for more detail please have a look at [GH-589]
  • Add support for all values of GOARCH [GH-601]
  • Add note about Syntastic usage as this problem comes up a lot [GH-580]
  • Add note about :GoUpdateBinaries [GH-606]

BUG FIXES:

  • Fixed :GoErrCheck showing the correct output when executed inside the source folder [GH-564]
  • Fixed :GoBuild by not using /dev/null anymore for build output (not supported by go). We pass a temporary file now. [GH-567]
  • Fixed :GoFmt passing g:go_fmt_options options to goimports. This option is only valid with gofmt. [GH-590]
  • Fix vim-go for cygwin users. [GH-575]
  • Fixed identifier in template files to be highlighted correctly [GH-559]
  • Fixed character region in template files to be highlighted correctly [GH-603]
  • Fixed variables in template files to be highlighted correctly [GH-611]
  • Do not treat builtins as keywords. Now make will not highlighted but make() will be highlighted (gh-605)

1.2 (Oct 2, 2015)

FEATURES:

  • A new :GoMetaLinter command which invokes gometalinter. Please check the PR [GH-553] for more detail on customizing and usage of :GoMetaLinter.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Improve :GoImport to trim spaces when including import paths of form "fmt "
  • Avoid setting filetype twice. Previously it was doing it twice, which was expensive
  • Improve handling of GOPATH's with trailing / characters, such as /home/user/go/
  • Add a new g:go_highlight_string_spellcheck feature, which is enabled by feature. Now if spell is enabled, go strings are also checked.
  • Specify our limited but functional gb support

BUG FIXES:

  • Fixed :GoRun to display errors when g:go_dispatch_enabled was enabled
  • Fixed :GoDrop displaying "Not enough arguments" (regression)
  • Fixed :GoErrCheck not showing PASS message if the command was successful
  • Fixed :GoErrCheck not executing in the directory of the currently edited file
  • Close quickfix window after a successful second round of :GoInstall
  • Fix passing files rather than packages to certain oracle commands.
  • Escape files passed to oracle command. This could lead to some serious things.
  • Clear g:go_oracle_scope when the scope was reseted. Previously it was set to empty string, which was causing false positives.
  • Correct various misspellings.

1.1 (Jul 25, 2015)

With this release the version will now increase in minor levels. So the next release will be 1.2, the other one 1.3, etc.. This provides us more flexibility (like releasing patch versions if needed).

FEATURES:

  • A new :GoGenerate command is now available which can be used to invoke go generate within vim
  • Vim-go didn't had any license, now we use BSD 3-Clause License (the same as Go). This is needed for Linux distributions to package vim-go and is also something that people asked for.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Improve commands GoRun, GoTest{,Func,Compile}, GoCoverage, GoGenerate, GoErrcheck, GoLint, and GoVet to handle multiple arguments. Previously this feature was limited to only certain commands. What this means is, for example :GoVet . -all will invoke go tool vet . -all automatically instead of plan go vet. This is one of the big changes in this release, so give it a try :)
  • Improved :GoFmt command, which now uses the -w flag to write to the source code directly, instead of outputting it to stdout. This makes :GoFmt much more faster than the current implementation. This is one of the big changes in this release, so feedback is welcome!
  • Improve :GoImport to have a ! feature. Now when when called with a ! appended it will go get it. i.e: :GoImport! github.com/fatih/color. Useful if :GoImport fails and you want to download it.
  • Automatic GOPATH detections can now detect gb vendored folders. Some commands should now work without any problem when invoked on a gb project.
  • All command arguments are now properly escaped for shell invocation.
  • Added the -f flag to :GoInstallBinaries command to support git url.<base>.insteadOf configuration
  • Improve width and precision highlighting, such as %s %5s %-5s %5.5f %.5f
  • Show an error if a region is not selected when :GoFreeVars is called

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix:GoDef for files containing spaces. We know escape the files before passing to :GoDef
  • Fix :GoFmt not picking up the correct GOPATH when the fmt command was set to goimports
  • Fix and simplify README.md, add Wiki reference
  • Fixed tagbar integration to show correct imports.

1.0.5 (May 26, 2015)

FEATURES:

  • A new :GoOracleScope is added to change the oracle scope on-the-fly. It accepts import paths as arguments. If no arguments are passed it prints the current custom oracle scope. :GoOracleScope also supports completion of import paths, so it's very fast and handy to use. :GoOracleScope "" clears the current custom scope.
  • A new :GoPath command that displays the current GOPATH. A path can be passed to change the GOPATH (i.e :GoPath ~/foo/src). :GoPath "" clears and resets the GOPATH to the initial value.
  • A new "autodetect GOPATH" feature is added. This automatically detects if the project is using godep or is under a src root directory which is not in GOPATH and changes/modifies the GOPATH so all commands work based on this GOPATH. What this means is, commands such as :GoDef, :GoBuild, etc.. will include the Godeps folder. For example any go-to-definition via :GoDef will jump to the source code inside Godeps. This is enabled by default, but can disabled with let g:go_autodetect_gopath = 0. This new feature is also the foundation for other tools such as gb or wgo.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Improve :GoFmt (gofmt and goimports) speed. Now it's 2x faster than the previous implementation.
  • Add Dispatch support for :GoBuild and :GoRun. For more info about dispatch see https://github.com/tpope/vim-dispatch . By default it's disabled, to enable it add let g:go_dispatch_enabled = 1 to your vimrc.
  • Add support for the bang ! attribute for all go tool commands. What this does it, if :GoBuild is called it will jump to the error. But :GoBuild! will not jump to any error. This has the same behavior as the internal :make command in vim. We had this feature already for :GoBuild and :GoRun. But not for :GoInstall, :GoTest, etc.. Now all commands are unified.
  • Add autojump to error for :GoInstall.
  • Add autowrite feature for :GoInstall, :GoTestXXX functions and :GoVet
  • Support git url.<base>.insteadOf and custom import paths of binaries. This improves the commands :GoInstallBinaries and :GoUpdateBinaries.
  • Add support for highlighting go templates with *.tmpl extensions. Based on the work from @cespare from https://github.com/cespare/vim-go-templates

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix clearing the status bar when :GoErrCheck is called
  • Fix godocNotFound to not match 'os' pkg contents. This improves the command :GoDoc
  • Fix parsing and jumping to error locations when used Vim from a different directory than the current buffer's directory
  • Fix completion showing duplicates paths for completion results, such as github.com/fatih/color and github.com/fatih/color/.

1.0.4 (Apr 28, 2015)

FEATURES:

  • A new :GoTestFunc command (with appropriate mappings) is added. Run tests function which surrounds the current cursor location. Useful to test single tests.
  • Highlight all Go operators. Previously not all operators were highlighted. As previously, to highlight options, enable it with by setting g:go_highlight_operators to 1 in your vimrc.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Improved certain :GoDoc usages to show a better error message
  • Improved :GoRename to have a default value for rename input. Avoids retyping similar words.
  • Synced with latest Oracle version. callgraph is removed.
  • Removed our custom referrers mode. New version of oracle now displays the matching lines.

BUG FIXES:

  • Fixed the internal executeInDir function which was failing when ignorelist was not set properly.
  • Fixed trailing slash for package completion with :GoImport
  • Fixed paths in error list for Windows users.
  • Fixed not showing "import cycle not allowed" error message when called :GoBuild or :GoRun
  • Fixed users using vimproc requiring arguments to functions to be escaped.
  • Fixed depth for test snippets
  • Fixed neosnippet support loading snippet files the second time if necessary.

1.0.3 (Mar 7, 2015)

FEATURES:

  • A new :GoTestCompile command (with appropriate mappings) is added. Useful to compile a test binary or show/fix compile errors in quickfix window

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • referrer mode is improved to show referring lines in the quickfix window
  • A new errt snippet is added, which expands to if err != nil { t.Fatal(err) }
  • A new errh snippet is added, useful to be used in a http.Handler
  • UltiSnips snippets are improved to take advance of Vim's Visual mode. For example selecting a block and typing if will create an if scope around the block.
  • Cleanup README.md

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix trimming brackets if completion was invoked on a previous completion
  • Fix Oracle scope settings. Added docs about usage.
  • Fixed previously broken var and vars snippets
  • Fix duplicate docs
  • Fix fallback binary path for Windows users. The fallback mechanism is used to discover the necessary Go tools, such as godef, gocode, etc...

1.0.2 (Feb 17, 2015)

FEATURES:

  • New snippets are added, mostly for testing ( changes)

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Enable all Oracle commands. Docs, mappings and commands are also added. It uses Quickfix list instead of a custom UI.
  • Clarify installation process in Readme, add instructions for vim-plug, NeoBundle and manual.

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix shiftwidth parsing, it was broken in the previous release for old Vim versions
  • Fix experimantal mode

1.0.1 (Feb 9, 2015)

FEATURES:

  • New feature to highlight build constraints (disabled by default)

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Updated godef import path
  • Updated Readme for possible problems with csh
  • Documentation for text objects are updated, typo fixes are merged
  • If vimproc is installed, Windows users will use it for autocompletion
  • Improve UltiSnips snippets to pick Visual selection (demo: http://quick.as/0dvigz5)
  • Packages with extensions, like "gopkg.in/yaml.v2" can be now displayed
  • Packages with different import paths, like "github.com/bitly/go-simplejson" can be now displayed

BUG FIXES:

  • Fatal errors are now parsed successfully and populated to quickfix list
  • Shiftwidth is changed to use shiftwidth() function. Fixes usage with plugins like vim-sleuth and possible mis usage (like setting shiftwidth to zero)
  • Added a new Donation section to Readme, for those who ask for it.
  • Fix parsing of errcheck error syntax
  • Fix consistency between Neosnippet and UltiSnips snippets

1.0 (Dec 24, 2014)
