Software update: KeePass Password Safe 2.39




Dominik Reichl has released version 2.39 of KeePass Password Safe. With this open source password manager accounts can be saved, including the associated data, such as username, password and url. All data is stored securely in a database encrypted with the Rijndael algorithm. Furthermore, the program can automatically generate passwords and import and export lists. By adding this language file the program can also be used in Dutch.

There are two different versions of KeePass Password Safe that are both actively developed. Version 1.x does not depend on other software and only works under Windows. Version 2 uses xml internally and requires at least version 2.0 of the .Net Framework or, if the program is used under Linux, macOS or FreeBSD, from Mono version 2.6 or higher. A complete overview of the differences between version 1 and 2 can be found on this page . Below is the changelog of this issue.

KeePass now uses Transactional NTFS (TxF) for writing database and configuration files, if possible; this improves the compatibility with other programs that are watching these files (eg file synchronization services).
Added command ‘Edit’ → ‘Show Entries’ → ‘Large Entries’.
Added command ‘Edit’ → ‘Show Entries’ → ‘Last Modified Entries’.
