What does 'go version' print?

go version go1.3.3 linux/amd64


What steps reproduce the problem?
If possible, include a link to a program on play.golang.org.

1. go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/cover
2. go tool cover

What happened?

go tool: no such tool "cover"; to install:
    go get code.google.com/p/go.tools/cmd/cover


What should have happened instead?

Usage instructions should have been printed.


Please provide any additional information below.

Comment 1:

The "go get" instruction that is printed should work for Go 1.3.
Using golang.org/x/tools/cmd/cover should work for Go 1.4.
The situation is confusing but we can't go back in time and change Go 1.3.

Status changed to Unfortunate.

I see. The announcement made me think otherwise. Thanks for clarifying.
