Add a package for Go 1.15.
The latest Go release, version 1.15, arrives six months after Go 1.14. Most of
its changes are in the implementation of the toolchain, runtime, and libraries.
As always, the release maintains the Go 1 promise of compatibility. We expect
almost all Go programs to continue to compile and run as before.
Go 1.15 includes substantial improvements to the linker, improves allocation
for small objects at high core counts, and deprecates X.509 CommonName. GOPROXY
now supports skipping proxies that return errors and a new embedded tzdata
package has been added.
There are no changes to the language.
The Go programming language is an open source project to make
programmers more productive.
Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency
mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of
multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables
flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to
machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power
of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language
that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
