There are several other changes. The most significant is the addition of a -buildmode option that expands the style of linking; it now supports situations such as building shared libraries and allowing other languages to call into Go libraries. Some of these were outlined in a design document. For a list of the available build modes and their use, run

$ go help buildmode
now also accepts a more common Go flag style with a single argument that is itself a name=value pair:

-X importpath.name=value
Finally, the -X flag, which takes two arguments, as in

-X importpath.name value
As a reminder, the linker's -X flag changed in Go 1.5. In Go 1.4 and earlier, it took two arguments, as in

-X importpath.name value
