Software update: KeePassXC 2.5.1

KeePassXC is being developed in C ++ with Qt for the graphics part which gives it a suitable look on Linux, macOS and Windows. This allows accounts to be stored, including associated data such as username, password and url. All data is securely stored in aes, twofish or ChaCha20 encrypted database.
