Keepass Password Safe 2.08

* Key transformation library: KeePass can now use Windows´ CNG/BCrypt API for key transformations (about 50% faster than the KeePass built-in key transformation code; by increasing the amount of rounds by 50%, you´ll get the same waiting time as in 2.07, but the protection against dictionary and guessing attacks is raised by a factor of 1.5; only Windows Vista and higher).
* Added support for sending keystrokes (auto-type) to windows that are using different keyboard layouts.
* Added option to remember key file paths (enabled by default).
* Added internal editor for text files (text only and RTF formatted text; editor can edit entry attachments).
* Internal data viewer: added support for showing rich text (text with formatting).
* Added inheritable group settings for disabling auto-type and searching for all entries in this group (see tab ´Behavior´); for new recycle bins, both properties are set to disabled.
* The password character picking dialog now supports pre-defining the number of characters to pick; append :k in the placeholder to specify a length of k (for example, {PICKPASSWORDCHARS3:5} would be a placeholder with ID 3 and would pick 5 characters from the password); advantage: when having picked k characters, the dialog closes automatically, i.e. saves you to click [OK].
* IDs in {PICKPASSWORDCHARSn} do not need to be consecutive anymore.
* The password character picking dialog now first dereferences passwords (i.e. placeholders can be used here, too).
* Added ´-minimize´ command line option.
* Added ´-iousername´, ´-iopassword´ and ´-iocredfromrecent´ command line options.
* Added ´--auto-type´ command line option.
* Added support for importing FlexWallet 1.7 XML files.
* Added option to disable protecting the clipboard using the CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE clipboard format.
* Added support for WebDAV URLs (thanks to Ryan Press).
* Added shortcut keys in master key prompt dialog.
* Added entry templates functionality (first specify an entry templates group in the database settings dialog, then use the ´Add Entry´ toolbar drop-down button).
* Added AceCustomConfig class (accessible through host interface), that allows plugins to store their configuration data in the KeePass configuration file.
* Added ability for plugins to store custom data in KDBX database files (PwDatabase.CustomData).
* Added interface for custom password generation algorithm plugins.
* URLs in the entry preview window are now always clickable (especially including cmd:// URLs).
* Added option to copy URLs to the clipboard instead of opening them (Options -> Interface, turned off by default).
* Added option to automatically resize entry list columns when resizing the main window (turned off by default).
* Added ´Sync´ command in KPScript scripting tool.
* Added FIPS compliance problems self-test (see FAQ for details about FIPS compliance).
* Added Rijndael/AES block size validation and configuration.
* Added NotifyIcon workaround for Mono under Mac OS X.
* Added confirmation box for empty master passwords.
* Added radio buttons in auto-type sequence editing dialog to choose between the default entry sequence and a custom one.
* Added hint that group notes are shown in group tooltips.
* Added test for KeePass 1.x plugins and an appropriate error message.
* Added interface for writing master password requirements validation plugins.
* Key provider plugin API: enhanced key query method by a context information object.
* Key provider plugin API: added ´DirectKey´ property to key provider base class that allows returning keys that are directly written to the user key data stream.
* Key provider plugin API: added support for exclusive plugins.
* The ´-keyfile´ command line option now supports selecting key providers (plugins).
* Auto-Type: added option to send an Alt keypress when only the Alt modifier is active (option enabled by default).
* Added warning when trying to use only Alt or Alt-Shift as global hot key modifier.
* TrlUtil: added search functionality and toolbar.
* TrlUtil: version is now shown in the window title.

Improvements / Changes:

* Improved database file versioning and changed KDBX file signature in order to prevent older versions from corrupting newer files.
* ShInstUtil now first tries to uninstall a previous native image before creating a new one.
* Improved file corruption error messages (instead of index out of array bounds exception text, ...).
* The ´Open in Browser´ command now opens all selected entries instead of just the focused one.
* Data-editing commands in the ´Tools´ menu in the entry dialog are now disabled when being in history viewing mode.
* Right arrow key now works correctly in group tree view.
* Entry list is now updated when selecting a group by pressing a A-Z, 0-9 or numpad key.
* Improved entry list performance and sorting behavior.
* Improved splitter distance remembering.
* Improved self-tests (KeePass now correctly terminates when a self-test fails).
* The attachment column in the main window now shows the names of the attached files instead of the attachments count.
* Double-clicking an attachment field in the main window now edits (if possible) or shows the first attachment of the entry.
* Group modification times are now updated after editing groups.
* Improved scrolling of the entry list in item grouping mode.
* Changed history view to show last modification times, titles and user names of history entries.
* KeePass now also automatically prompts to unlock when restoring to a maximized window.
* Improved file system root directory support.
* Improved generic CSV importer preview performance.
* When saving a file, its path is not remembered anymore, if the option for opening the recently used file at startup is disabled.
* Improved auto-type input blocking.
* Instead of a blank text, the entry dialog now shows "(Default)" if the default auto-type sequence is used in a window-sequence association.

* Improved plugin incompatibility error message.
* Deprecated {DOCDIR}, use {DB_DIR} instead ({DOCDIR} is still supported for backward compatibility though).
* Last modification times of TAN entries are now updated.
* F12 cannot be registered as global hot key anymore, because it is reserved for kernel-mode / JIT debuggers.
* Improved auto-type statement conversion routine in KeePass 1.x KDB file importer.
* Improved column width calculation in file/data format dialog.
* Improved synchronization status bar messages.
* TrlUtil: base hash for forms is now computed using the form´s client rectangle instead of its window size.
