JPasswords 0-6-0 RC3 Released

JPasswords is a versatile and proficient Java application to store and manage passwords on encrypted databases. Its convincing virtues are a intuitive interface and excellent cross-platform usability with a special "PORTABLE" program modus.

some security settings remain savely fixed to the local host. Most notably to the user we have
SPANISH as new surface language, system tray icon support, basic print support, external mail
client calls and the possibility to define own special characters (modifications to set "Symbols")
in password generation policies. For a more complete list of changes please refer to the
"Changelog.txt" document. ... read more
