Today we announce Go 1.4, the fifth major stable release of Go, arriving six months after our previous major release Go 1.3. It contains a small language change, support for more operating systems and processor architectures, and improvements to the tool chain and libraries. As always, Go 1.4 keeps the promise of compatibility, and almost everything will continue to compile and run without change when moved to 1.4.

Of course, this release is all about Android, even though it’s just experimental support. The pace of Go library support for Android within Google is just staggering.
The plan should be obvious: kill off Java and reliance on Oracle cruft (and legal issues) and get much better performance while at it.
