The February release got a little late… better later than even later, I guess! 😄

goreleaser healthcheck

goreleaser healthcheck

It is packed with some juicy features and tons of bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements.

Let’s take a look:


  • On GoReleaser Pro you can now add dividers between groups in the changelog. Documentation.
  • GoReleaser Pro also gets a new template variable: {{ .Artifacts }}, which you can iterate over to build, for instance, custom scripts. Oh, how can you build custom scripts? I’m glad you asked! Documentation.
  • Concluding our Pro-exclusive feature-set for this release: template files! You can template entire files, and they’ll get added to the release! Documentation.
  • All GoReleaser distributions get a new subcommand: healthcheck. Documentation.
  • The single build statement has been undocumented for many years, and has been deprecated.
  • You can now announce to OpenCollective. Documentation.
  • Templating updates: nfpms get {{ .ConventionalExtension }}, new templateable fields, base (as in filepath.Base) template function, and more.
  • When running on a new project, with no project_name set, and no git remotes, GoReleaser will now try to infer the project name from the go.mod file instead of erroring.
  • GoReleaser is now built with Go 1.20.
  • As always, a lot of bug fixes, dependency updates and improvements!

You can install the same way you always do, and you can see the full release notes here and here (for Pro).
