goversion.Version needs to be incremented by one at the start of each development cycle, to match the upcoming major Go release version.

Once done, this issue should be moved to the next major release milestone.

This is the start of the Go 1.16 development cycle, so update the
Version value accordingly. It represents the Go 1.x version that
will soon open up for development (and eventually become released).

Historically, we used to bump this at an arbitrary time throughout
the development cycle, but it's better to be more predictable about
updating it. The start of a development cycle should be the most
appropriate time: it clearly marks the boundary between 1.15 and
1.16 development, and doing it early can help catch issues in other
tooling. See issue #38704 for more background.

There is no longer a need to update the list of Go versions in
src/go/build/doc.go because it does not exist as of CL 232981.

For #40705.
Updates #38704.
Updates #37018.
