Software Update: KeePassXC 2.5.2

KeePass Password Safe is a well-known open source password manager that was originally developed for the Windows platform, but can later work on other platforms with the help of Mono. KeePassXC is being developed in C++ with Qt for the graphics part which makes it look suitable on Linux, macOS and Windows. Allows accounts to be stored, including associated data, such as username, password, and url. All data is stored securely in an aes, twofish or ChaCha20 encrypted database. Furthermore, the program can automatically generate passwords and import and export lists. For more information, we refer you to this page. The changelog for version 2.5.2 looks like this:
