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.
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.
In addition, this has some significant "under the hood" restructuring to support the next version of the PasswordSafe format.
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
||Uniform behavior for generated password: Can be explicitly
copied to clipboard whenever generated (no longer copied by default).
||Toolbar elements display correctly on high-resolution monitors
under Windows 8.1 and later.
New Features for 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.
