PasswordSafe was originally designed by Bruce Schneier and released as a free utility application. Since then,
it has evolved considerably. The following table has links to pages detailing the release history of PasswordSafe
since the project was made open source. This can be useful for seeing
what features were added and what bugs were fixed since a given release.
28 December 2014
PasswordSafe version 3.35 for Windows, and 0.95 (beta) for Linux, have been released.
Thanks to dk, mniklas, rafael, sauravg and pm_kan for their help in this release.
Bugs fixed in V3.35
||Support newer YubiKeys in all modes.
||In the Flattened List view, keep the icon column, if present, as
leftmost, to ensure proper display.
||The Read-Only checkbox no longer clears itself after returning
from the file selection dialog. Also, the read-only checkbox in XP
file selection dialog is handled correctly.
||CurrentFile preference is updated sooner rather than later, so
last database is set as default for next invocation.
Changes to Existing Features in V3.35
||Password Policy: You can now choose a character set without
requiring at least one character from that set (i.e., minimum
required can be zero).
