KeePass 1.12 Release Notes


Problems and solutions when upgrading to KeePass 1.12.

Text  Complex references do not work with auto-type

Symptoms:
When referencing fields of other entries that contain special auto-type characters (like '(', ')', '{', '}', '%', etc.), copying to the clipboard works fine, but auto-type fails.

Cause:
Field references are followed recursively. In order to allow this recursive behavior, characters of inserted reference data are not escaped for auto-type, which makes auto-type fail.

Resolution:
None yet. To avoid the problem, don't use special auto-type characters in data fields.
[Update: This problem has been fixed for KeePass 1.13. Development snapshot available on request.]

Workaround for auto-type:
You can escape referenced data manually for auto-type, however note that copying the fields to clipboard then won't work correctly anymore (the escaped data will be copied).


Text  Auto-type does not send special characters anymore

Symptoms:
When trying to auto-type a complex password containing special characters, auto-type misses characters or types random-looking data.

Cause:
The field reference features introduced in KeePass 1.12 required a change in the string parsing and replacement engine to support recursive replacements. This change however can in some cases prevent characters from being escaped for auto-type, which makes auto-type missing characters.

Additionally, using back- and forward-referencing (cyclic entry dependency graph) you can access/insert memory-protected password data. This will not corrupt your database or introduce security problems, however auto-type will send random-looking data.

Resolution:
None yet. Both problems have been analyzed in detail and will be fixed in KeePass 1.13 (an almost complete rewrite of the string parsing and replacement engine will be required).
[Update: This problem has been fixed for KeePass 1.13. Development snapshot available on request.]
