Release Notes: WebCert is now UTF-8 clean and can handle international characters. Certificates in Japanese are now looking great. Specific start and end dates allow the creation of certs with a lifetime of minutes, or certs with future dates. SubjectAltName extensions expanded from two to four. Display functions were overhauled: text and PEM format is shown on a single page. Validation of remote servers can now display the remotely received certificate chains, i.e. the intermediate and root certificates. HTML code validates as "XHTML v1.0 transitional".
Release Notes: The new certificate validation function "certvalidate.cgi" allows the analysis of the signing certificate chain, both for a local certificate or for a remote server. The implementation of SubjectAltNames now allows the creation of multi-purpose certificates. The obsolete "Netscape Comment" extension for server certificates has been removed. Submitted certificate requests are now signed including their requested extensions. Since version 1.7.4, WebCert's version control has moved to Github.
