It looks like this has been in the works at least since NY BSD Con and from what I can gather should result in some increased security. I am going to try it on a test xfce4 desktop to see if anything breaks.

Any success? The bsd.rd for amd64 I downloaded last night didn't have properly working networking. There was no updating of the route table by dhclient from what little I looked into may be wrong. Both with wired and wireless interfaces.

The amd64, sgi, loongson and sparc64 platforms have been switched to PIE (position-independent executables) by default.

Manually downloaded all the sets and upgraded; all my packages upgraded flawlessly with pkg_add -ui and it has been running stable so far. Everyone loves pie!

I have not had any issues either - but my testing has been limited.
