(Johan Dahl) #1

Hello gophers,

We have just released Go versions 1.12.1 and 1.11.6, minor point releases.

These releases include fixes to cgo, the compiler, the go command,
and the fmt, net/smtp, os, path/filepath, sync, and template packages.

View the release notes for more information:
https://golang.org/doc/devel/release.html#go1.12.minor

You can download binary and source distributions from the Go web site:
https://golang.org/dl/

To compile from source using a Git clone, update to the release with
“git checkout go1.12.1” and build as usual.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the release.

Cheers,
Katie for the Go team

It’s not clear to me whether the fix for CVE-2019-9741 is included in the 1.11.6 release. Please can someone confirm.

It doesn’t seem so. The issue is closed https://github.com/golang/go/issues/30794 because it doesn’t affect 11.12. I guess you have to test yourself…
