We'll be redesigning based on feedback received over the last year. This is the third in a series of issues about plans for the pkgsite/design-2020 milestone. Comment below with any feedback or suggestions related to this issue!


There are multiple ways in which “latest” can be defined for a path. In order to better express various relationships, we will use the following terms:

  • Series: 1 or more modules that are major versions of each other
  • Project: 1 or more modules that share the same path prefix
  • Latest minor version: the latest minor version of a module containing a path, according to the cmd/go definition. This is also referred to as the “latest” or “@latest” version.
  • Latest major version: the latest major version in a module series.
    • If the latest major version does not have any tagged versions, but an earlier version does, will default to the earlier version as the “latest” major version.

Design will continue to use the following:

  • A “Latest” badge to indicate whether a user is viewing the latest minor version
  • A banner to indicate when a user is not viewing the latest major version


Note: This image is a mock, so the data may not accurately represent the exact contents of this package.

We plan to also use the banner style to indicate other information related to surfacing the “latest” version, such as when a path is not present in the latest version of the module.

If a path exists in the latest version of a module,<path> will always show the contents for the latest version of the containing module.
