11 January 2004

Nolan Eakins has written a Linux version of PasswordSafe! This applicaiton, called MyPasswordSafe, is compatible with pre-2.0 database files created by the Windows version. MyPasswordSafe is built upon Qt 3, and is based on the 1.92 PasswordSafe code base. The first release is available here (source) and here (binary). Nolan has put up a page describing MyPasswordSafe at http://www.semanticgap.com/myps/. Note that I have not reviewed MyPasswordSafe's code in depth, nor have I tried to run the program. Specifically, I've no idea if MyPasswordSafe is as (in)secure as PasswordSafe is or not. Note also that this is a first release, and that Nolan is actively developing the program. For the time being, we have decided not to merge Nolan's code into the PasswordSafe codebase on SourceForge. I'd like to thank Nolan for his effort, and for making his work available in both source and binary form. This is OpenSource development at its best!

3 January 2004

PasswordSafe 2.0-pre2 has been released. This fixes most of the issues raised by user of the last release, as well as implementing the "export to plaintext" feature. Here are the Release Notes, and here's a link to the download. Note that this is still a BETA release. I expect that there will be one or two additional iterations until a non-beta release will be ready.
