KeePassX 2.0 Highlights:

  • KeePassX 2.0 is using the new .kdbx (same as KeePass 2) database format.
  • You can import your .kdb database from 0.4 from the Database > Import KeePass 1 database.
  • This is a one-way process though. You can’t migrate back to the .kdb format.

New features include:

  • Multiple attachments per entry
  • Add custom key/value pairs to entries
  • Open multiple database in one window

KeePassX 2.0 has been rewritten from scratch so some features (like showing expired passwords) are still missing.

The important changes compared to beta 2 are:

  • Improve UI of the search edit.
  • Clear clipboard when locking databases
  • Enable Ctrl+M shortcut to minimize the window on all platforms
  • Show a better message when trying to open an old database format
  • Fix global auto-type behavior with some window managers.
  • Show global auto-type window on the active desktop
  • Disable systray on OS X.
  • Restore main window when clicking on the OS X docker icon
