On Wednesday Google officially announced the release of Go 1.4. The Go 1.4 update to the programming language features small language alterations, new OS/processor support, tooling improvements, and other changes.

Most notable about the Go 1.4 release is official support for Android. The Android support is along well enough that simple Android programs can now be coded entirely in Go but the support libraries and other Android enablement work is still in early stages.

Go 1.4 also has NaCL on ARM support, minor performance improvements, much of the runtime is now written in Go itself, garbage collection improvements, and much more.
