KeePass 2.42 released, cross-platform password management tool

KeePass

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

Changelog

New Features:

  • Added main menu items ‘Group’, ‘Entry’ and ‘Find’, which contain all commands related to groups and entries (supersets of context menus); removed ‘Edit’ main menu item, because all of its commands are included in the three new main menu items.
  • Added support for a system-wide hot key to auto-type only the password of a matching entry; by default, the hot key is Ctrl+Alt+Shift+A, changeable in the options dialog.
  • When double-clicking the URL cell of an entry in the main entry list while holding down the Shift key, KeePass now copies the URL to the clipboard (a double-click without Shift continues to open the URL; the option ‘Copy URLs to clipboard instead of opening them’ reverses this behavior).
  • Added quick edit commands ‘Expires: Now’ and ‘Expires: Never’.
  • There now are two commands for copying a whole entry to the clipboard: ‘Copy Entry (Encrypted)’ and ‘Copy Entry (Unencrypted)’; the first one encrypts the data for the current user using the Windows DPAPI.
  • Added Ctrl+Shift+P shortcut for printing the currently selected group.
  • The creation time and the last modification time of an entry are now displayed on the ‘History’ tab of the entry editing dialog.
  • Added support for importing Steganos Password Manager 20 CSV files.
  • Added support for importing Bitwarden 1.12 JSON files.
  • Mozilla Bookmarks JSON import: added support for importing tags (new format, in addition to the old format) and keywords.
  • Enhanced the Enpass import module to support TXT files created by version 6.0.4.
  • The language selection dialog now also lists KeePass 1.x LNG files; when trying to select such a file, an informative error message is displayed.
  • Added ‘Cancel’ command in the context menu of KeePass’ system tray icon, which can be used to abort opening and saving a database file.
  • Added ‘-cancel‘ command line option, which causes all other KeePass instances to cancel opening/saving a database file.
  • Added ‘-auto-type-password‘ command line option (other running KeePass instances auto-type only the password of a matching entry).
  • Added ‘-e1:‘ command line parameter, which works like ‘-e:‘, but is handled by only one other instance; ‘-e:‘ is handled by all other instances.
  • When compiling a PLGX plugin, KeePass now defines a ‘KP_V_*_*_*‘ symbol, where the asterisks specify the KeePass version (for example, ‘KP_V_2_42_0‘ for version 2.42).
  • Added workarounds for .NET Caps Lock warning tooltip bug.
  • Added workaround for Mono grid view default color bug.
  • Added workaround for OneDrive bug on Windows 1809.
