Latest Post: Go 1.18 Released
Go 1.18 was released last week (March 15) and I have finally had a chance to play with it. I have been excited for it in the month leading to the release, reading almost every preview that I saw on Twitter, and the release has not disappointed! I think the last release that got me this excited was 1.16, when they added embed. Today, I want to share a few of things that made me a bit more excited than usual for a Go release.

A few more details
