Changes from 1.27 to 1.28:

New Features:

  • The estimated password quality (in bits) is now displayed on the quality progress bar, and right of the quality progress bar the length of the password is displayed.
  • Pattern-based password generator: the '^' character now removes the next character from the current custom character set (for example, [a^y] contains all lower-case alphanumeric characters except 'y').
  • In the cases where Windows would display outdated thumbnail and peek preview images for the main window, KeePass now requests Windows to use a static bitmap instead (showing only the KeePass logo).
  • While saving a database, a shutdown block reason is now specified.


  • Improved input control focusing in the master key dialog after displaying a validation error message.
  • When duplicating an entry, the last modification time is now copied from the source entry.
  • Improved window message relaying when KeePass is minimized to tray.
  • Upgraded installer.
  • Upgraded to Boost libraries version 1.56.0.
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.


  • Key provider plugins are now remembered correctly (if the option 'Remember key sources' is enabled).
