To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: i386 switched to PIE The i386 architecture has now been switched to PIE. There is a small performance hit, but this part of ASLR is valuable combined with W^X and the stack protector. This is a non-trivial upgrade, so please be careful. Check the FAQ for details or use a snapshot.
As it says in the commit message, special steps are required for upgrading from source, so check the instructions for doing so, if not upgrading via snapshots.
