Hello everyone

I would like to use the latest available Go version in Google App Engine Flexible. However, the latest supported Go version seems to be 1.15, see The responsible repository was not updated since 2020, and relevant pull requests are ignored for unknown reasons, see 

I know it’s not fully relevant in this group but who else could help?

Appengine, in the past has always run about 2 versions behind. It does seem a little out of date. That said, I’d your using flex, then you can use a custom image with anything you would like in it. As per the documentation.

You can customize these runtimes or provide your own runtime by supplying a custom Docker image or Dockerfile from the open source community.”
