Go (golang) 1.13, the next version of Google’s open source language, is now in a beta stage. The update supports a more uniform and modernized set of number literal prefixes.

Go 1.13 is expected to graduate to production release status in August 2019. Language changes in the release abide by the golang number literal proposal, which extends the language to make it easier for developers to move between Go and other “C-numbered” languages including C, C++, C#, Java, and JavaScript.
