Go is a highly hyped (last year) new programming language by Google. Thanks to ongoing community effort, its Win32 compatibility constantly improves. This week’s rolling release should be considered a major milestone. In the somewhat dry words: “implementation of callback functions for Windows” and “cgo: windows/386 port”, it introduces two major breakthroughs for this platform: WinAPI GUI support, and the ability to easily wrap and link external (non-Go) libraries. Note that there’s an unofficial compiled build for Win32 available for download.

Sorry but I thought go was to be cross-platform, how a WinAPI GUI could help in this direction? GTK+ is available on Windows. Why are they wasting developers’ time?
