Certbot 0.20.0 has just been uploaded to PyPI. The changelog for this
release is:

### Added

* Certbot's ACME library now recognizes URL fields in challenge objects
in preparation for Let's Encrypt's new ACME endpoint. The value is still
accessible in our ACME library through the name "uri".

### Changed

* The Apache plugin now parses some distro specific Apache configuration
files on non-Debian systems allowing it to get a clearer picture on the
running Apache configuration.
* Certbot better reports network failures by removing information about
connection retries from the error output.
* An unnecessary question when using Certbot's webroot plugin
interactively has been removed.

### Fixed

* Certbot's NGINX plugin no longer sometimes incorrectly reports that it
was unable to deploy a HTTP->HTTPS redirect when requesting Certbot to
enable a redirect for multiple domains.
* An issue running the test shipped with Certbot and some our DNS
plugins with older versions of mock have been resolved.
* On some systems, users reported strangely interleaved output depending
on when stdout and stderr were flushed. This problem was resolved by
having Certbot regularly flush these streams.
