Go 1.12.3 and Go 1.11.8 are released

(Johan Dahl) #1

Hello gophers,

We have just released Go versions 1.12.3 and 1.11.8, minor point releases.

These releases fix an issue where using the prebuilt binary releases on older versions of GNU/Linux led to failures when linking programs that used cgo.

Only Linux users who hit this issue need to update.

View the release notes for more information:


You can download binary and source distributions from the Go web site:


To compile from source using a Git clone, update to the release with

“git checkout go1.12.3” and build as usual.
