KeePassXC 2.2.0 released

We are very excited to announce the release of KeePassXC 2.2.0! We have worked long and hard to bring you lots of new features and bug fixes in a well-rounded release. Among the top highlights of this release are

  • YubiKey challenge-response support for strengthening your database encryption key
  • a generator for time-based one-time passwords (TOTP)
  • a diceware password generator
  • a command line interface (CLI)
  • CSV database import
  • true portable mode with the config file residing in the same directory as the application
  • automatic database locking when you lock your desktop session

We also feature a new welcome screen providing quick access to common actions when no database is loaded:

Besides these highlights, KeePassXC ships with many other new features and improvement. With 167 closed issue reports, 2.2.0 is by far the biggest KeePassXC release so far and we thank all contributors who have made this amazing release possible.
