Why aren't you using the latest version of Go?

I generally use the latest version, updating soon after it is released.

What version are you using?
Why are you still using it?
When do you plan on upgrading? To which version?

I always use the latest version. The Go 1 compatibility promise makes it easy to always stay current.

At this occasion, a big thanks to the maintainers of the Homebrew formula for Go. My Mac is usually up to date with the latest version within one day after a new release. (Homebrew is a popular package manager for macOS.)

I also use the latest version. I don’t use local package manager but gopei installer to update at the newest version.

In a survey about this time last year, @freeformz asked:

If you do not use the latest major (go1.6*) Go version, please explain why.
