KeePassX 2.0 Alpha 3 released

I’m happy to announce the third alpha release of KeePassX 2.0.

The most important changes are:
– Auto-Type on Linux / X11
– Database locking
– Fix database corruption when changing key transformation rounds [#34]
– Verify header data of kdbx files
– Add menu entry to open URLs in the browser
– Add menu entry to copy an entry attribute to clipboard

Starting with this release we also provide binaries for Windows.

Please test the new version and report any issues at

Beware, this is an alpha release and not intended to be used in a production environment.

    Thank you very much!
    It is much better than KeePass via Mono on linux. Working smoothly.

    This is awesome. Works great! Didn’t find any problems. Imported a kdbx file from windows and edited it.
    Does this version support auto password generation? if so how? if not, are there plans to add it?
    Thanks again!

        The “Generate Password” botton under “”Show/Hide password” is missing in the “Edit entry” dialog box.
        Also “Open URL” isn’t working.
        Still a great product! Much better then the alternative.

    Can someone please give detailed instructions on how to install this. I tried googling instructions for installing this type of file, but not are too informative. Thanks

    Since today I cannot access my database anymore using KeePassX 2.0 Alpha 3
    Opening it from Windows or via my iPhone App still works flawless…

    Error message on my Mac immediately after entering the master password:

    Unable to open the database.
    Invalid database file (error no 6).
    Line 137, column 1435

    Do you have any clue?
