Certbot 1.7.0 Release

Certbot 1.7.0 has just been released. The changelog entry for the release is:

1.7.0 - 2020-08-04


  • Third-party plugins can be used without prefix (plugin_name instead of dist_name:plugin_name):
    this concerns the plugin name, CLI flags, and keys in credential files.
    The prefixed form is still supported but is deprecated, and will be removed in a future release.
  • Added --nginx-sleep-seconds (default 1) for environments where nginx takes a long time to reload.


  • The Linode DNS plugin now waits 120 seconds for DNS propagation, instead of 1200,
    due to https://www.linode.com/blog/linode/linode-turns-17/
  • We deprecated support for Python 3.5 in Certbot and its ACME library.
    Support for Python 3.5 will be removed in the next major release of Certbot.

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