Ubuntu Make, formerly known as the Ubuntu Developer Tools Center, is up to version 0.4 and it adds Go language support.

Ubuntu Make is one of the newer Ubuntu Linux projects for making it easier for developers to quickly and easily setup development environments on the popular distribution. Ubuntu Make 0.4 was released today and it introduces Google Go support along with bringing a new game category. Ubuntu developers can run umake go to deploy the latest version of Google golang along with setting up the proper build environment.

The new game category for Ubuntu Make is for trying to start attracting Linux game developers to this Ubuntu tooling center. So far in the game section is just Stencyl, a simple application for creating multi-platform games -- namely iOS and Android mobile apps.

Those interested in ubuntu-make can find it already available for Ubuntu Vivid while it's available via a PPA for Ubuntu 14.04/14.10. More details via Launchpad.net and this blog post.
