I'm glad to annonce the first non-beta release of PasswordSafe version 3.
"under the hood".
Among the user-visible features:
 Creation time of new entries is now recorded
 User can configure an expiration date for entries and be notified
 Modification and access times now optionally recorded.
 It's now possible to copy Notes to Clipboard
 Toolbar additions (Autotype, Browse URL, Copy Notes to clipboard)
 Password can now be (optionally) viewed in Nested Tree Mode
 Ability to clear "Recent Database List"
 Browse to URL now starts a new instance of the user's default browser
rather than taking over an existing instance
Internally, the password file format has been redesigned to provide better
security. Specific issues raised in reviews have been addressed, and the
underlying cryptographic algorithms have been updated (from Blowfish and
SHA-1 to Twofish and SHA-256).
This version of PasswordSafe reads databases from previous versions, and by
default stores them in the new format. It's also possible to "export"
databases to the old format.
The following bugs fixed since the second Beta release:
 Generated password no longer trashed if > 127 bytes
 Find now searches new URL and Autotype fields
 Restore after minimize now works when system-tray not used.
 Read-only command line argument bug
 Help file now reflects 3.0 new features.
[1490985, 1423020, 1398936] Microsoft redistributable dlls now included in
installation and zip file. Should fix all "MS*.dll not installed" problems
 Can now close application after minimize w/o system tray.
Thanks to the brave folks who tried out the Beta versions and gave valuable
inputs, thanks again to the gang on the passwordsafe-devel list for help in
hammering out the new file format, and special thanks to DK for implementing
the new features!
