Certbot 1.12.0 Release

We just released Certbot 1.12.0. The changelog entry for the release is:


  • The --preferred-chain flag now only checks the Issuer Common Name of the
    topmost (closest to the root) certificate in the chain, instead of checking
    every certificate in the chain.
    See #8577.
  • Support for Python 2 has been removed.
  • In previous releases, we caused certbot-auto to stop updating its Certbot
    installation. In this release, we are beginning to disable updates to the
    certbot-auto script itself. This release includes Amazon Linux users, and all
    other systems that are not based on Debian or RHEL. We plan to make this
    change to the certbot-auto script for all users in the coming months.


  • Fixed the apache component on openSUSE Tumbleweed which no longer provides
    an apache2ctl symlink and uses apachectl instead.
  • Fixed a typo in certbot/crypto_util.py causing an error upon attempting secp521r1 key generation

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