Huzzah! A new `tls-grab` has been released. [Version
2.0.0]( is available
now. This version has a number of improvements:
- It's dumber! Which is a good thing, in this case. The previous version was trying to be too clever and didn't show certificates it should have. Now
**`tls-grab` will show the first certificate in the chain**.
- The CLI flag parsing now uses [pflag]( over the stdlib's flag library. This makes **the CLI more GNU-ish**, which in my opinion
is more comfortable.
- Debug logging! Not super useful for y'all, but it helps me out.
- **Proper SNI support**, allowing you to override the hostname provided in the handshake. `tls-grab` always supported SNI, but you couldn't connect to a server
and use a different hostname. Now you can, with `-h`/`--host`.
- **Removed the `-server` flag**, just specify the server's name on the command line. Even more comfortable! I wish I had done this earlier, forgetting to include
the flag each time was rather annoying...
Next up is creating a man page and some OS packaging. Though that later bit is part of a larger plan, more on that another time.
