Let's Encrypt client 0.1.1 released

We’ve just release version 0.1.1 of the Let’s Encrypt client. It includes a number of important bugfixes over the Public Beta / 0.1.0 version, including:

  • fix a confusing UI path that caused some users to repeatedly renew their certs while experimenting with the client, in some cases hitting issuance rate limits
  • numerous Apache configuration parser fixes
  • avoid attempting to issue for unqualified domain names like “localhost”
  • fix --webroot permission handling for non-root users

A more complete changelog since 0.1.0 can be found here:

You can get the 0.1.1 client by running letsencrypt-auto, or waiting for packages from your OS (client packages are currently available in Debian Unstable, Fedora 23, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and Arch Linux).

You can track progress towards 0.2.0 here:

By the way, @pde, Gentoo has a client package in its repository too. The maintainer is aware of the fact that the Apache and nginx plugins are only available in his overlay, but has e-mailed me that he’ll move the Apache plugin to the main tree, hopefully in the next few days. (I only asked about the Apache plugin, but I assume the nginx plugin will have the same fate :stuck_out_tongue:.)
