Certbot 1.19.0 release

We just released Certbot 1.19.0. The changelog entry for the release is:

1.19.0 - 2021-09-07

Added

  • The certbot-dns-rfc2136 plugin always assumed the use of an IP address as the
    target server, but this was never checked. Until now. The plugin raises an error
    if the configured target server is not a valid IPv4 or IPv6 address.
  • Our acme library now supports requesting certificates for IP addresses.
    This feature is still unsupported by Certbot and Let's Encrypt.

Changed

  • Several attributes in certbot.display.util module are deprecated and will
    be removed in a future release of Certbot. Any import of these attributes will
    emit a warning to prepare the transition for developers.
  • zope based interfaces in certbot.interfaces module are deprecated and will
    be removed in a future release of Certbot. Any import of these interfaces will
    emit a warning to prepare the transition for developers.
  • We removed the dependency on chardet from our acme library. Except for when
    downloading a certificate in an alternate format, our acme library now
    assumes all server responses are UTF-8 encoded which is required by RFC 8555.

Fixed

  • Fixed parsing of Defined values in the Apache plugin to allow for = in the value.
  • Fixed a relatively harmless crash when issuing a certificate with --quiet/-q.

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

A feature was added to Certbot that's still unsupported by Certbot? Is this only a library thing?

@griffin Correct, the acme library, which is used by certbot, is part of the "grand" certbot repository. It's possible to use the acme library separate from certbot :slight_smile:

Just like the certbot repository has a bunch of DNS plugins, which are also separate from certbot and the acme library.

As far as I know, all the packages (not sure if that's the correct word) within the certbot repository are released at the same time. I believe it's called "lockstep versioning"?
