    I already played around a bit wit the beta a while back and made an iterator library to get to know this new language. It's here for anyone interested: https://github.com/polyfloyd/go-iterator

    Regarding call chaining, it is still possible to chain things with operations that return different types, but they have to be done with functions instead of methods, so the result is still the same, just it's a little less readable. There is a generic iterator implementation by polyfloyd that doesn't support method chaining, but imo being able to chain iterators is one of their biggest strengths, since implementing lazy evaluation manually for a single operation isn't that difficult, its when you need to perform multiple kinds of manipulations that it gets messy.
