KeePass 2.13 released -- now with monospaced passwords!


KeePass is my favorite password management utility; I've been using it for years. And this morning I noticed that version 2.13 has just been released!

There's nothing revolutionary here, but a couple of the noteworthy features are:

  • Passwords are now displayed in monospace font. This is a small, but neat, usability improvement. As you can see on the screenshot, it's easier to tell the letter O apart from the digit 0, and I imagine that the same is true for I and 1, etc.
  • "Unix-like systems" (read: Linux) can now enjoy the auto-type functionality, which has been available under Windows for a while now. This is a great feature; it matches the current window title with a password in your database so that, when you hit Ctrl+Alt+A, the correct username/password pair are automatically entered right from the KeePass database. It's very handy indeed – and now our Linux-loving friends can use it, too.

There are a few more features, but overall, this is just an incremental update. If you're using KeePass, I recommend updating. And if you're not, ... now's a great time to start!
