Azure runtime stack for Go 1.19 flagged as Experimental

I'd like to set up an App service using the Go 1.19 runtime stack. It has plentiful documentation and is relatively well fleshed out so it supports my use-case. However, it is flagged as experimental. I could not find any document saying why this is so. What is the reason for this? Is it safe to use the runtime stack in for production purposes?

    Hi @Terziev Ivan ,

    Adding to Dagoberto's response- Go is currently in an experimental phase and not recommended for production applications. The Azure docs will be updated to reflect a change if Go becomes GA. If you want to use it in production, you can consider running your own custom container https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/quickstart-custom-container?tabs=dotnet&pivots=container-linux-vscode

    Hope that helps.
