This is to announce the release of PasswordSafe version 3.19. This release
has a couple of nice new features, as described below, some bug fixes, as
well as support for French (NEW!), German (full), Swedish (full), Russian
(partial), Chinese (partial), Polish (partial), and Spanish (partial). If
you're interested in supporting your language, please let me know. Thanks to
Karlo, Bjorn, pm_kan and Francois for their translation efforts and feedback
on this release! Many thanks to DK for his work and patience, and thanks to
Vasily and gillum for their contributions to this release.
New Features for 3.19
 The Edit/View dialog now shows the details of the entry being
edited/viewed in its title caption (This is updated when saving the entry).
 A new email field has been added, supporting email headers 'to',
'subject', 'cc', 'bcc' and 'body' (per RFC 2368 - see online help for
details). If this field is not empty, it is used instead of the URL field
even if that contains an email address.
Note: whereas the URL field had to have the 'mailto:' prefix to denote an
email address rather than a URL, the email field must not contain this
 PasswordSafe now handles Vista (and later) logoff, shutdown & restart
more gracefully, giving the user now has more time to save a modified
 Add new AutoType special fields '\wnnn' and '\Wnnn'. Unlike '\d', which
sets the delay between sending each subsequent character, '\w' & '\W'
introduces a one-time delay where they appear. For '\w', the value 'nnn' is
in milli-seconds. For '\W', this specifies seconds. Note: Max. value is 999s
(16m 39s), during which time PasswordSafe will be unresponsive while it
waits the specified time. Also supported via the Run Command $a command.
 Add menu item to copy the Run Command to the clipboard.
 Support Run Command and Double-Click Action (and email) fields in
Changes to Existing Features in 3.19
 Changing the Security option to lock Password Safe when the workstation
is locked, no longer requires a restart of Password Safe to come into
 Due to the French keyboard not supporting the key '-' in an accelerator,
the shortcut for "Password Subset" has been changed from "Ctrl + -" to "Ctrl
+ B". Please do not allocate "Ctrl + -" to any shortcut if you will be using
a French keyboard.
 If a dialog is open (e.g. Add, Edit, Options etc.) and Password Safe is
minimized, the Close and Exit options are no longer in the System Tray
context menu. The user must first Restore the application and close the
dialog before being able to close the database or exit the program.
 If preferences stored in the database are changed, the user will be asked
if they want to save them in the database when closing the database or
application even if none of the entries have been changed.
 The preference to Lock the Database after a certain amount of idle time
has changed from being a global parameter affecting all databases opened by
the user to be specific to each database.
