This is perhaps not the answer you are looking for, but a package manager like Chocolatey can help to keep Go up-to-date at least semi-automatically. I use Homebrew on Mac (a similar concept to Chocolatey), and the latest Go release is usually available within one day or so.

The “Gopher answer”: Write a Go tool that retrieves all download links, finds the highest X.X.X value, and downloads and installs this one. :slight_smile:

didn’t know Chocolatey. Will have a look at it.

Yes i hoped that they somwhere host a “latest” link. :wink: (or an RSS feed on thier DL Site)
