We are currently using Go 1.4.2 in production. As security is a primary concern in our business and as I'm a Go newbie, I was wondering if anyone could give an opinion on the level of security (in terms of non-hackability, reduced exploitable surface, etc.) offered to the same application running on Go 1.4.x, 1.5.x, and the imminent version 1.6. I'm aware that the compiler and runtime have been rewritten in Go for 1.5 and I presume that at least that factor has some security implications. Would the general advice be to move away from 1.4.x as soon as possible, or to wait for the later versions to prove themselves.
TIA for all opinions, rants, observations.
