It looks like the Go maintainers are playing with a generational GC now. Rick Hudson has posted a patch series on Gerrit: https://go-review.googlesource.com/c/go/+/137482

How is this compare to G1GC?

Really interesting. I'm in love with Golang, it has some weird design decisions (hello GOPATH!, what's up 3rd party popular libraries with no folder structure!..) but at the end of the day it's my favorite programming language: performant, neat, simple and with several built-in tools (godoc, godep, golint, go test, etc..)
