Changes from 1.35 to 1.36:

New Features:

  • KeePass now uses Transactional NTFS (TxF) for writing database files, if possible; this improves the compatibility with other programs that are watching these files (e.g. file synchronization services).
  • Added automatic completion support for the user name box in the entry editing dialog (suggesting user names that are used in other entries).
  • Added option 'Search for passwords in quick searches' (turned off by default).
  • The KP1_CFG_LOCAL environment variable now supports paths relative to the current working directory.


  • File transactions now preserve access control list (ACL) entries.
  • File transactions are not used anymore when attempting to write to a local file that does not exist yet (to ensure a correct default ACL).
  • File transactions are not used anymore for files that have a reparse point (e.g. symbolic links).
  • The configuration system does not create a KeePass folder in the user's application data folder anymore when the target configuration file location is outside this folder.
  • Upgraded to Boost libraries version 1.68.0.
  • Upgraded installer.
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.


  • (None).
