Go vendoring tools updated & optional support for go toolchain in image

Change effective on 23 September 2016

The vendoring tools we support have had their versions bumped. The new versions are:

  • GB (0.4.3)
  • govendor (1.0.8)
  • glide (0.12.2; unsupported, but provided)

You can now set heroku config:set GO_INSTALL_TOOLS_IN_IMAGE=true -a <app> to install the go toolchain into the slug image so that it is available inside of a running dyno.

You can also set heroku config:set GO_SETUP_GOPATH_IN_IMAGE=true -a <app> to setup your code inside of a $GOPATH in the slug.

For more information please see our Heroku Go Support devcenter article.
