Go: Asynchronous Preemption
ℹ️ This article is based on Go 1.14.
The preemption is an important part of the scheduler that lets it distribute the running time among the goroutines. Indeed, without preemption, a long-running goroutine that hogs the CPU would block the other goroutines from being scheduled. The version 1.14 introduces a new technique of asynchronous preemption, giving more power and control to the scheduler.
