We just implemented SSL / HTTPS by default for all connections to beta.etherpad.org
Thanks to GlobalSign for the free cert.
Thanks to Nginx for making it easy to implement.
Thanks to Jesus for staying holy.
Enjoy and remember beta.etherpad.org is a play-ground, don’t use it for any real science.
1.4 is due soon, feel free to help us push it out, it’s crowning.
