Talking about Go 1.16, this is a release to be excited about. Here are some of my personal highlights:
- fs.FS interface. This should make a bunch of filesystem operations agnostic to the underlying storage service.
- Clean up of 'go get' vs 'go install'
- Embedding files into binaries- Smaller binaries- Faster linking- darwin/arm64 support

@fribbledom these are nice updates, especially the "go get" vs "go install" cleanup.
the big change to look forward to is going to be generics in 1.18/19 now that their proposal has been accepted
