Certbot 0.28.0 Release


Certbot 0.28.0 has just been released.

The big change in this release is that support for the TLS-SNI-01 challenge has been deprecated which you can read more about at Upcoming TLS-SNI Deprecation in Certbot.

The full changelog for the release is:

0.28.0 - 2018-11-7


  • revoke accepts --cert-name, and doesn’t accept both --cert-name and --cert-path.
  • Use the ACMEv2 newNonce endpoint when a new nonce is needed, and newNonce is available in the directory.


  • Removed documentation mentions of #letsencrypt IRC on Freenode.
  • Write README to the base of (config-dir)/live directory
