Changes from 2.52 to 2.53:

New Features:

  • For each entry listed on the 'History' tab page of the entry dialog, the fields modified with respect to the previous entry are displayed.
  • Added 'Compare' button on the 'History' tab page of the entry dialog; when two (not necessarily consecutive) history entries are selected, clicking the button shows a detailed comparison (with values, etc.).
  • When editing an entry, the history entry list of the entry dialog now contains an entry called 'Dialog (unsaved)', which represents all data entered in the current dialog (other tab pages).
  • When editing an entry, the history entry list of the entry dialog now contains an entry called 'Current (TIME)', which is the entry that is currently stored in the database (without any changes made in the current dialog).
  • Added 'History' command in the 'Find' main menu; it lists all entry modifications (sorted by time).
  • Added filter box in most report dialogs (last modified entries, history, large entries, similar password clusters, password quality, history entry comparison, database file search, ...).
  • Added 'Print' button in most report dialogs.
  • Added 'Export' button in most report dialogs; supported formats are CSV and HTML.

  • Added access keys in the tags button drop-down menu of the entry/group dialogs.
  • Added access keys in the 'View' → 'Sort By' menu.
  • Added access keys in the entry templates menu.
  • Added access keys in the 'Perform Auto-Type' menu (which is displayed if the 'Show additional auto-type menu commands' option is turned on).
  • Added {HMACOTP} and {TIMEOTP} in the 'Perform Auto-Type' menu.
  • Added keyboard shortcut Ctrl+T for the 'Copy Time-Based OTP' entry data command.
  • Added keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+T for the 'Show Time-Based OTP' entry data command.
  • Enhanced Password Depot XML import module to support the new format (added support for the new node names, group icons, recycle bin, tags, favorites, auto-type delay conversion, history, enhanced icon mapping, enhanced date/time parsing, ...).
  • Added border for headings in HTML exports/printouts.
  • Added support for running KeePass in FIPS mode.
