Software Update: KeePass Password Safe 1.04

Spread the love

A new version of KeePass Password Safe can be downloaded from SourceForge. This program is an open source password manager and can store accounts with associated data, such as username, password and URL, in an AES and Twofish encrypted database. The program can automatically generate passwords, import and export lists, advanced search and make use of plugins with which the functionality can be further expanded. The changelog of version 1.0.4 looks like this:

Changes in version 1.04:

  • Added dialog that lets you select an entry if multiple entries match the current window when pressing the global auto-type hotkey (previously KeePass always just used the first entry that matched, now you can select the right entry)
  • An entry now can have multiple Auto-Type-Window strings
  • User input is now blocked while KeePass is auto-typing
  • URLs in note fields are clickable now (including entry preview window)
  • KeePass now supports all protocols in URLs that delimit the protocol prefix and the address using ‘://’
  • Default auto-type sequence for TAN entries now is {PASSWORD}
  • Added option to show TANs in a more simple list view
  • Added option to show TAN indices in entry titles
  • TANs are marked as used/expired when auto-typing them
  • Fixed a bug that prevented several auto-type codes from working
  • New auto-type code: {CLEARFIELD} clears the contents of the edit control that currently has the focus
  • On Windows 2000 simple asterisks are displayed now instead of black dots as on Windows XP
  • Added option to exit the program instead of locking the workspace after the specified time
