I’m guessing that the omission of i386 from the pre-built architectures in the download area is not an oversight. (I do wonder whether i386 is really less popular than some of the MIPS or PPC variants, but that’s an aside, and my gut feeling is possibly quite wrong.)
But, for those of us that have been very happily running websites on older hardware, and now need to upgrade to caddy 2, it would be nice to still have that download option. Any chance of i386 being brought back?
In absence of that, a couple of suggestions for making that regression less painful: a) Call it out early in the upgrade notes that i386 is no longer directly supported, and b) give specific instructions for building one’s own i386 binary. (I’ve found the cross-build instructions, but will need to search further to find the proper GOARCH value.
(who has never built a Go application, and hopes it will be as painless as advertised.
