KeePassX 2.0 Alpha 5 released

Iā€™m happy to announce the fifth alpha release of KeePassX 2.0 as an early Christmas present šŸ˜‰

The most important changes are:

  • Support copying entries and groups using drag’n’drop [#74]
  • Open last used databases on startup [#36]
  • Made the kdbx file parser more robust
  • Only edit entries on doubleclick (not single) or with enter key
  • Allow removing multiple entries
  • Added option to minimize window when copying data to clipboard
  • Save password generator settings
  • Fixed auto-type producing wrong chars in some keyboard configurations [#116]
  • Added some more actions to the toolbar

Special thanks to Albert Weichselbraun for reworking the X11 auto-type code, fixing the bug mentioned above and making it much more maintainable.

Please test the new version and report any issues at


You can also checkout the latest source code from our git repository at

Beware: this is an alpha release. While I believe the code base is already rather stable make sure to regularly backup your database.

    Hey, thanks for the hard work you put in this project. What I am missing so far is the double click to copy password or username option and the autotype function.

    On my hunt for this I stumbled over the macpass project at wich is really nice and really os x like. Perhaps you can join forces and create a really nice keepass2 compatible os x solution. So far I like macpass better. I only wanted to mention that perhaps if you would work on one project instead of two it would be more interesting for you and the users šŸ˜‰

    But don`t take me wrong, I really appreciate your hard work! Thanks for that!

    Thank you very much for your great job. I am waiting for the stable version. when can we install it from official REPO in archlinux?

    I have to mention a problem I’ve had with this program to be fixed in the next version.
    Keepassx in KDE clear entire clipboard after the seconds taht we set in settings. I think it could be better if it gonna clear only username or password that pushed in clipboard and do not touch the other entries.

    Hi. Nice update to previous version. What I would wish to have are a) a button to shown my password while typing when opening the database and b) the search bar permanently shown at the top (much quicker). Thank you!
