Changes from 1.18 to 1.19:

New Features & Improvements:

  • Added option to remember key sources (key file paths, provider names, ...); it's enabled by default.
  • New locking timer (using a timeout instead of a countdown).
  • Lock files are now hidden.
  • On Windows 7 and higher, the main window peek preview is now disabled when the KeePass workspace is locked.
  • File transactions: the NTFS/EFS encryption flag is now also preserved when the containing directory isn't encrypted.
  • {FIREFOX} placeholder: added support for registry-redirected 32-bit Firefox installations on 64-bit Windows systems.
  • Relative database paths on the command line are now evaluated relatively to the initial working directory (specified by the parent process) instead of the last used directory.
  • Improved user-friendliness in UAC dialogs.
  • Improved help (moved placeholders to separate page, ...).
  • 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).
  • Upgraded installer.
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.
