KeePassX 2.0 has arrived

We’re proud to announce the first stable release of the KeePassX 2 series after several years of development.

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. [#342]
  • Enable Ctrl+M shortcut to minimize the window on all platforms. [#329]
  • Show a better message when trying to open an old database format. [#338]
  • Fix global auto-type behavior with some window managers.
  • Show global auto-type window on the active desktop. [#359]
  • Disable systray on OS X. [#326]
  • Restore main window when clicking on the OS X docker icon. [#326]

You can fetch the new release from the downloads page.

    Looking forward to basic features coming back because so far it’s a lot of regression.
    – focus in search field upon application start
    – double clicking on username/password copy to clipboard instead of editing entry
    – preview panel showing other info from the selected entry
    – customizable columns
    Is there an official PPA for ubuntu 16.04 for more up-to-date versions with “new” features?

    Nice that it is using the .kdbx format, but a few fundamental features are missing:

    – preview panel showing details of the selected entry
    – customisable columns

    Hi, thanks for this great app!

    We (the users on Linux) badly need 2 command-line options:
    –minimized (to start the app minimized, placing the icon in the indicators according to the config option)
    –to-front (bring the main window to front, to bind it to some key combination)

    Additionally, it’ll be great to make that the indicators icon display the main window on single click (or double-click, configurable), as now, after minimizing the window, one should click on the icon in the indicators, select toggle window and then click on the icon in the launcher to un-minimize it. 3 clicks in different parts of the screen just to bring the main window on top.

    I agree .. the preview panel is missing so much here !
    specially when this “feature” is still available on the 2.x windows version

    Please give our preview panel back !! We love it !!
