KeePass 1.16 available!


Screenshot KeePass 1.16 has been released today!

You can get it here: Download KeePass 1.16.

This is a stable release. It is recommended to upgrade from any previous 1.x version to 1.16. KeePass 1.16 is 100% backward compatible with previous versions.

This release features CNG/BCrypt support on Windows Vista and higher for faster key transformations, a completely new update notification system (which now also supports checking for plugin updates), and various other minor new features and improvements.

Hash sums and OpenPGP signatures for integrity checking are available. New translations and plugin builds are available, too.


Changes from 1.15 to 1.16:

New Features:

  • Added option to use Windows' CNG/BCrypt API for key transformations (about 50% faster than the KeePass built-in key transformation code; by increasing the amount of rounds by 50%, you'll get the same waiting time as in 1.15, but the protection against dictionary and guessing attacks is raised by a factor of 1.5; option enabled by default; only Windows Vista and higher).
  • Completely new update checking system that now also supports checking for new plugin versions.
  • Added warning when trying to open a KDBX file created by KeePass 2.x (with hint about how to migrate from 2.x to 1.x).
  • Added 'KeeAutoNewDbBasePath' and 'KeeAutoNewDbBaseName' configuration options (to specify the default location where the database file will be stored in mini mode).
  • Added advanced option to immediately delete TAN entries after using them.
  • Added '-minimize' command line option.
  • Added '-registerfileext' and '-unregisterfileext' command line options to register/unregister the KDB file association.
  • File association methods are now UAC aware.
  • Added check for reserved group names (like 'Backup').
  • On Windows Vista and higher, core database manager error / warning messages are displayed using modern task dialogs.
  • The number of days below which entries are treated as soon to expire can now be configured (see help -> customize).
  • Plugins: added new COM interface (IKpAPI2) for the main API that allows querying whether the database is the one initially specified on the command line.
  • Key provider plugin API: new key query method that supports context information.

Improvements:

  • Image list handling improvements.
  • When auto-locking after the specified number of seconds of inactivity, KeePass minimizes to taskbar or to tray, depending on the 'Minimize to tray instead of taskbar' option.
  • Plugin versions are now displayed in a separate column in the plugins dialog.
  • When trying to open a second master key dialog or auto-type entry selection dialog for a window, KeePass brings itself to the foreground instead of showing a second dialog.
  • Calculation of soon to expire entries is now more precise.
  • Various improvements to status bar messages.
  • Improved workspace locking toolbar button tooltips.
  • Installer: various minor improvements.
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.

Bugfixes:

  • Newlines of the notes field are now encoded correctly in exports when Unix mode is enabled.
  • New databases do not inherit file names of previous locked databases anymore.
