    I tested KeePassXC for the first time today on Linux. OS X and Windows users might prefer KeePassXC over KeePassX as autotype works there:

    I can’t say anything about security or how many hidden bugs it has, but the GUI is much better than KeePassX which has had unfixed GUI-bugs for a few years. Only disadvantage I could find was that it has a function to talk with web browsers through plugins which I don’t think I will use and therefore offers no advantage to me but might possibly be a security threat if accidentally left on in settings. I don’t know, but it should’ve been put in an optional plugin not in the main program.

    The original KeePass for Windows/.Net has more functionality and is probably more secure in Windows than both KeePassX and KeePassXC and works great on Win7, 8.x and 10. .Net lowers the risk for security related bugs created by programmers compared to C++. But on Linux the GUI isn’t appealing, has bugs and requires mono so X and XC are better there in my opinion.

    On my Linux machines I think I might switch from X to XC, but I’ll test XC a few weeks first and look for bugs before the switch. In Windows I’ll probably use the original KeePass.

    First, thanks for the great free software, really appreciate it. Please can I add a feature request for KeePassX? If possible please can you look into adding the ability to import version 2 databases on Linux. I regularly use multiple Windows and Linux workstations and I can open a v2 database from Windows on Linux but I cannot merge one, which means that any new Linux entries must be imported into KeePass on Windows first before re-opening on Linux, this is a bit of a pain as my Linux machine is air gapped from my Windows one by a few hundred miles!

    Thank you for this great tool, I am just new to Mac and used to use Keepass 2 on Windows, I was really embarassed when I found out that it did not work as expected with mono.

    Having a compatibility between DB with Keepass 2 is just so powerful and time saving.

    Do you plan new features or having plugins for 2018 ?

    All the Best
