Possible to bump Golang version?

Currently we have

$ go version
go version go1.7.5 linux/amd64

However a few mainstream libraries have already bumped their minimum version support to go1.8, such as github.com/lib/pq as stated here https://github.com/lib/pq/issues/741

Is it possible to have Golang bumped to 1.8 or latest stable?


You can always install it in the /app directory, you will need to name it differently (e.g go2 version) though. Make sure to put it in a directory that is remix-able though as .data will not pass through.
