We don't add features to released versions, just bug-fixes.  Ladar has posted a patch for 1.0.2 for those do-it-yourselfers who are so inclined.

The 'master' branch, which will become 1.1.1 at some point, can do it:
; sh /tmp/x
Generating a 2048 bit ED25519 private key
writing new private key to '/tmp/key.key'
; cat /tmp/x
./apps/openssl req -new -outform PEM -out /tmp/cert.crt -newkey \
 ed25519 -nodes -keyout /tmp/key.key -keyform PEM -days \
 3650 -x509 -extensions v3_req -subj \
