1471134
Added Autotype code "\s" to send "Shift+Tab" (back tab).
n/a Allow user to control copying of the password to clipboard when performing "Browse to URL" via an option in Options->Security. This is a database option i.e., you can have different setting for different databases.
n/a Support importing of TXT, CSV files and XML exported from KeePass V1 and KeePass V2 XML files. Note that KeePass V2's export in the V1 format is does not conform to their own format as specified by their V1 product and can not be imported. Please review our Help file for the settings in KeePass required during their export.

Changes to Existing Features in V3.26

n/a New image on start-up dialog - courtesy of user Prinz_Eugen.
n/a Polish installation texts added thanks to Michal Niklas.

n/a The default password generation policy is now for 12 character passwords that include symbol characters (previous default was 8, no symbols).
n/a Unknown database header fields and unknown entry fields are no longer exported when a database is exported to XML as there is no mechanism to re-check them during import. Exporting to XML and then importing to a new database can be used to remove these unknown fields.

n/a Korean texts in the application and installer program thanks to Seunggyun.
n/a Poserpro has provided Traditional Chinese texts for the installer program.

Changes to Existing Features in V3.25

3171962
The password expiration warning mechanism now checks for expiration daily. The display of expired and almost-expired entries has been redesigned, allowing users to update the entry directly.

Double-clicking on the system tray icon when PasswordSafe is not minimized now brings it to front, instead of minimizing.
3131935

n/a Filtered views are now updated when an entry's edited, e.g., if an entry is edited such that it no longer satisfies the filter's criteria, it will be removed from the display.
n/a The Russian online help has been totally rewritten and updated, thanks to pm_kan.

Fix new group creation location.

3165889
No longer crashes if search starts with Shift-Enter (search backwards).
3148701
