A boring release, mostly bug fixes. Boring is good.


  • You can now sort tags by semver in GoReleaser Pro
  • Docker pushes will now be retried when the registry yields a 503. It’ll retry 10 times.
  • Winget: added support for package_dependencies and update schema version to 1.5.0.
  • GoReleaser will now run against Gerrit, Soft-Serve, and other Git providers, as long as the SCM release is disabled.
  • You can now ignore Git tags that match a regular expression.
  • You can now skip pre build hooks on goreleaser build.
  • Properly go mod handling on pre-mods Go versions.
  • WASI support.
  • New templateable fields and functions.
  • Several bug fixes, specially when the runtime OS is Windows.

Besides that, some important refactories that should help evolving GoReleaser further:

  • --skip merges all the --skip-* flags, and will be extended to more features (open an issue requesting what you need 📩).
  • Template error handling was improved.
  • We also updated GoReleaser to Go 1.21.

And, as always, several bug fixes and documentation updates!


GoReleaser was never properly/extensive tested on Windows. It somewhat works, but there are many rough edges, and potentially some bugs here and there.

To make Windows a first-class runtime for GoReleaser, I started trying to make CI pass on Windows. It’s a bit hard to evolve it as I don’t really use Windows, and end up having to juggle around VMs and/or CI.

If you use Windows regularly and want to contribute to OSS, ping me on our Discord, I’m happy to help you in any way you need, especially if you are a beginner in the field and/or Go.


Our blog was migrated to a new address (and out of medium)!

It still a work in progress, though. You can also see the still-open issue here

The old address will still be up indefinitely, but we won’t be updating it any longer.
