31 December 2015

PasswordSafe version 3.38 has been released. This fixes a problem with displaying PasswordSafe under Windows 8 and later on high resolution displays.

Thanks to Bill, Bjorne, dk, Jorge, Kevin, Nicholas, pm_kan, sauravg, Todd, Vladimir and others for their help in this release.

Bugs fixed in V3.38

10 October 2015

PasswordSafe version 3.37.1 has been released. This fixes a regression found in 3.37, affecting the "wide" version of add and edit entry windows (these are displayed when the user's screen is relatively short). Thanks to Nicholas for reporting this, and to dk for rapidly finding and fixing the root cause.

6 October 2015

PasswordSafe version 3.37 for Windows has been released. Thanks to Bjorne, dk, Francois, Larry, pm_kan, sauravg, and sp1l, for their help in this release.

New Features for V3.37

n/a The Notes External Editor now accepts environment strings (e.g. %windir%) in the path to the editor.
78 If the double-click action (or shift-double-click) of an entry is set to Edit/View Entry, then (shift-) double-clicking on its shortcut will edit/view the base entry. The selected shortcut entry can still be viewed/edited via menu, right-click or just hitting Enter.
782 Notes field font is now user-configurable.
781 Virtual Keyboard - allow playing sound when a valid or invalid key is pressed and add caption to the Space Bar (Partial implementation of this Feature Request).

1273 Find in the Tree View will now ensure that any found entry will be visible by scrolling appropriately.

1254 Toolbar customisation now has correctly aligned text/images.
1244 Changes to symbol set in default password policy are respected when "Use easy-to-read characters" is set.
1230 "Open as read-only" check-box correctly set when opening a R/W database after previously opening/selecting a R-O database.

1124 Autotype on a shortcut entry now picks up title, group and user fields from shortcut instead of base.
1082 Field modification times set to creation time for list view and entry's time and date tab. This is more useful than "N/A", e.g., for sorting by password modification to find old passwords that should be changed.
1054 Password Variable in Run Command correctly set when executed from an alias.
