KeePassXC 2.5.2 released

Today we are releasing the second maintenance update for the 2.5 baseline, KeePassXC 2.5.2.

This update comes with additional fixes to reported issues after our initial release. Thank you for your patience and detailed reports that allowed us to fix these problems. Overall this release brings significant stability and usability improvements to KeePassXC. Most notably are fixes to crashes when the database is stored in a cloud storage service and resolving site sub-domain matching for the browser extension.

Additionally, we provided several macOS related fixes including support for Qt 5.14 and using a readable monospace font for the password and notes fields.

The new release can be downloaded from our downloads page, our Ubuntu PPA, and Snapcraft.

Please report any bugs you encounter at our GitHub issue tracker. We are also available on Matrix and IRC in case you have any other issues with the new release (see Contact).
