Changes from 1.14 to 1.15:

New Features:

  • Completely new plugin architecture (exposing a lot more functionality to plugins, faster, requires less memory, safer memory management / cross-module calls, more secure, and allows independent development of KeePass and plugins, i.e. starting with 1.15 KeePass can be updated without requiring plugins to be updated and vice versa).
  • Added option to use advanced in-memory protection (DPAPI, only Windows Vista and higher; the key is stored in a secure, non-swappable memory area managed by Windows; option enabled by default).
  • The hash of the master key and its transformed version are now in-memory protected.
  • Added help source selection dialog (by default the online help center is used).
  • Added '-set-urloverride', '-clear-urloverride' and '-get-urloverride' command line options.
  • Focused disabled menu items are now drawn with a transparent selection rectangle.
  • Windows XP and higher: added support for double-buffering in the entry list.
  • Windows Vista and higher: added support for alpha-blended marquee selection in the entry list.
  • Added KeeForceAllowChangeMasterKey, KeeForceAllowPrinting, KeeForceAllowImport and KeeForceAllowExport configuration options (these override the option to disable unsafe operations and the mini mode setting; they are only loaded from the enforced and global INI files, not the local one).
  • Added KeeDisallowPrintingPasswords configuration option to disallow printing passwords and viewing them in the print preview.
  • Added multi-user documentation.


  • Improved plugin loading performance.
  • Plugins don't need to be manually enabled anymore (just copy the plugin files into the KeePass application directory).
  • Improved main menu items order.
  • Improved main menu accelerators.
  • Improved group main menu item texts.
  • Improved performance of various entry list operations.
  • Hash of master key is now cleared when closing a database.
  • Hash of file key is now cleared after opening/saving files.
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.


  • Fixed cursor navigation problem in secure edit controls.
  • Fixed random access violation in OnScreenKeyboard plugin.
