Certbot 0.30.0 Release


#1

Certbot 0.30.0 has been released. The changelog for the release is:

0.30.0 - 2019-01-02

Added

  • Added the update_account subcommand for account management commands.

Changed

  • Copied account management functionality from the register subcommand
    to the update_account subcommand.
  • Marked usage register --update-registration for deprecation and
    removal in a future release.

Fixed

  • Older modules in the josepy library can now be accessed through acme.jose
    like it could in previous versions of acme. This is only done to preserve
    backwards compatibility and support for doing this with new modules in josepy
    will not be added. Users of the acme library should switch to using josepy
    directly if they haven’t done so already.

Despite us having broken lockstep, we are continuing to release new versions of
all Certbot components during releases for the time being, however, the only
package with changes other than its version number was:

  • acme
  • certbot

More details about these changes can be found on our GitHub repo.


No way Jose? The dreaded "ImportError: No module named jose"

How should we update certbot? CentOS 7.6 here. It’s currently 0.29.x.

As a general note, these posts would be far more helpful if LetsEncrypt could presume a slightly less technical audience. Thinking that users are experts in ‘acme’ or ‘josepy’ is strange. Please share specific commands for OSes/webservers as in the doc. Many thanks.

I am not speaking for EFF in any way. I consider the certbot release announcements directed at package maintainers and people who are deploying certbot themselves. In the latter case I recommend familiarity with the components that certbot is made of.
If you are using packages from your Linux distribution, then upgrades come from there.
