- Previously, the ltrace utility did not support the Position Independent Executables (PIE) binaries, which are linked similarly to shared libraries, and processes. Consequently, addresses found in images of those binaries needed additional adjustment for the actual address where the binary was loaded during the process startup. With this update, the support for the PIE binaries and processes has been added and ltrace now handles the additional processing for the PIE binaries correctly.
- When copying internal structures after cloning a process, the ltrace utility did not copy a string containing a path to an executable properly. This behavior led to errors in heap management and could cause ltrace to terminate unexpectedly. The underlying source code has been modified and ltrace now copies memory when cloning traced processes correctly.
