Apache SpamAssassin 3.2.2 released!

In our on-going efforts to break something in the stable branch every couple of months, we released Apache SpamAssassin 3.2.2 this week. It fixes a few bugs, including the inability to install SpamAssassin 3.2.1 via CPAN using sudo — at least for some Perl versions on some platforms. On some platforms with some Perl versions, most commonly Perl 5.6.1, spamd might not be able to setuid (ie., drop root privs) and proceed to continuously kill its children when they end up attempting to run as root. So if you want to upgrade to 3.2.2 make sure that you can run “make test” as root before installing the software. If make test as root fails you’d be best off waiting for 3.2.3.
