KeePassXC 2.6.4 released

Today we are releasing the fourth 2.6 maintenance update, KeePassXC 2.6.4.

This new version fixes various minor bugs, updates a vulnerable third-party dependency, and enables live theme switching. Whereas previously, the user had to restart KeePassXC in order to switch between light and dark mode, this can now be done at runtime without the need for a restart. On Windows and macOS, the application now also responds automatically to theme changes in the system, working much better with Big Sur’s “Auto” theme.

KeePassXC 2.6.3 released

Today we are releasing the third 2.6 maintenance update, KeePassXC 2.6.3.

This update includes support for new KeePass2 features that increase the security of your database: XML Key File Version 2 and Argon2id. The new XML Key File makes it easier to print your key file for storage and recovery. This is now the default key file created by KeePass2. KeePassXC continues to generate hashed key files by default for the time being, though an XML key file can be generated by choosing the*.keyx file extension. The benefits of Argon2id are discussed here.

Along with these improvements, this update includes better support for CSV import/export, protection from Windows 10 clipboard history, macOS Big Sur icon styling, and improvements to the user interface and user experience.

Fixes include a workaround for vanishing icons experienced by users of the qt5ct platform theme and wonky UI widgets on high-DPI screens with fractional scaling.

Notable additions in this release are a new menu entry for selective Auto-Type of usernames or passwords only, as well as an API for retrieving TOTP codes via the browser extension.

KeePassXC 2.5.4 released

Today we are releasing KeePassXC 2.5.4, the fourth maintenance update for KeePassXC 2.5.

The update primarily resolves a compatibility issue with macOS 10.15.4 and 10.14.6. The most recent macOS security patches changed the way code signatures are checked resulting in a KeePassXC crash at startup. We published a quick workaround at the end of last month, for which we had to sacrifice TouchID support in order to allow you guys to continue using KeePassXC. This update ships with a full resolution of the code signing issue and brings back TouchID.
