KeePass 1.25 released

Screenshot KeePass 1.25 has been released today!

You can get it here: Download KeePass 1.25.

This is a stable release. It is recommended to upgrade from any previous 1.x version to 1.25. KeePass 1.25 is 100% backward compatible with previous versions.

If you are using KeePass together with a port of KeePass and the port has problems with opening database files saved by KeePass 1.25, please read the page KeePass 1.24 and 2.20 Header Authentication.

Some LNG translation files are now named differently. If you do not have to overwrite an existing file during updating your translation (i.e. the file name of the translation has changed), you have to select the new translation in 'View' -> 'Change Language'.

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

For a comparison of the current KeePass 1.25 and 2.20.1, see: Editions Comparison.
