Changes from 2.13 to 2.14:

New Features:

  • Added option to lock after some time of global user inactivity.
  • Added option to lock when the remote control status changes.
  • Auto-type on Unix-like systems: added special key code support (translation to X KeySyms) and support for {DELAY X} and {DELAY=X}.
  • Added window activation support on Unix-like systems.
  • Auto-type on Windows: added {VKEY X} special key code (sends virtual key X).
  • Added support for importing DataVault 4.7 CSV files.
  • Added support for importing Revelation 0.4 XML files.
  • Added 'Auto-Type - Without Context' application policy to disable the 'Perform Auto-Type' command (Ctrl+V), but still leave global auto-type available.
  • Added option to collapse newly-created recycle bin tree nodes.
  • Added 'Size' column in the history list of the entry dialog.
  • Added trigger action to remove custom toolbar buttons.
  • Added kdbx:// URL scheme overrides (for Windows and Unix-like systems; disabled by default).
  • Added KeePass.exe.config file to redirect old assemblies to the latest one, and explicitly declare .NET 4.0 runtime support.
  • Added documentation for the '-pw-enc' command line parameter, the {PASSWORD_ENC} placeholder and URL overrides.
  • Added workaround for ^/& .NET SendKeys issue.

Improvements / Changes:

  • New locking timer (using a timeout instead of a countdown).
  • Improved locking when the Windows session is being ended or switched.
  • Improved multi-database locking.
  • Separated the options for locking when the computer is locked and the computer is about to be suspended.
  • {FIREFOX} placeholder: added support for registry-redirected 32-bit Firefox installations on 64-bit Windows systems.
  • File transactions: the NTFS/EFS encryption flag is now also preserved when the containing directory isn't encrypted.
  • The IPC channel name on Unix-like systems is now dependent on the current user and machine name.
  • KeePass now selects the parent group after deleting a group.
  • Entries are now marked as modified when mass-changing their colors or icons.
  • Key states are now queried on interrupt level.
  • A {DELAY=X} global delay now affects all characters of a keystroke sequence when TCATO is enabled, too.
  • Improved dialog closing when exiting automatically.
  • Plugin-provided entry list columns can now be right-aligned at KeePass startup already.
  • Removed KDBX DOM code.
  • Installer: the KeePass start menu shortcut is now created directly in the programs folder; the other shortcuts have been removed (use the Control Panel for uninstalling and the 'Help' menu in KeePass to access the help).
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.


  • Quotes in parameters for the 'Execute command line / URL' trigger action are now escaped correctly.
  • Auto-type on Unix-like systems: window filters without wildcards now match correctly.
