Certbot 0.9.0 Released

We have just released Certbot 0.9.0. This is easily the biggest Certbot update since our initial release. Included in this release is:

  • An alpha version of the Nginx plugin. This plugin fully automates the process of obtaining and installing certificates with Nginx. Additionally, it is able to automatically configure security enhancements such as an HTTP to HTTPS redirect and OCSP stapling. To use this plugin, you must have the certbot-nginx package installed (which is installed automatically when using certbot-auto) and provide --nginx on the command line. This plugin is still in its early stages so we recommend you use it with some caution and make sure you have a backup of your Nginx configuration.
  • Support for the DNS challenge in the acme library as well as DNS support in Certbot’s manual plugin. This allows you to create DNS records to prove to Let’s Encrypt you control the requested the domain name. To use this feature, include --manual --preferred-challenges dns on the command line.
  • Help with enabling Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) on CentOS 6 when using certbot-auto. To use certbot-auto on CentOS 6, the EPEL repository has to be enabled. certbot-auto will now prompt users asking them if they would like the script to enable this for them automatically. This is done without prompting users when using letsencrypt-auto or if -n/--non-interactive/--noninteractive is included on the command line.
