Hi all, the latest version (0.30) of Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA was released this week. Notable among other improvements is the addition of support for OpenSSL 1.1.0.
This is great news because many platforms are installing OpenSSL v1.1.0 by default (e.g. the aptitude package manager I use on Ubuntu), which leads to the familiar XS header file incompatibilities that prevent XS-based modules from installing. These include Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA, which is required by Crypt::LE, the wrapper around the free certificate issuer Let's Encrypt's API, which was what I was trying to set up. Since LE certificates expire in 90 days, automatic renewal is important, and I was really wanting to manage that with Perl. Thanks to Todd Rinaldo that's possible again.
The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
