The only major change in this release is the hiding of the pass phrase. When I first started working on Objectify it required a minimum of a 35 character pass phrase, which was difficult to type correctly if it was hidden from view. Later I changed it so that the minimum number of characters was 10, but I did not fix it to hide the characters as they were typed.
In this release, by default it prints asterisks instead of the actual characters when the pass phrase is being entered. If you enter 'show' at the pass phrase prompt it will revert to the old behavior and display the actual character typed. If you enter 'last' at the prompt it will only display the last character typed and all of the other characters will be replaced by asterisks. You can also type 'help' at the pass phrase prompt to get more information.
