The Linux port of PasswordSafe is currently in BETA.
This means that (1) you should take care to keep copies of the
database to protect against possible loss of data due to bugs, and (2)
there are several unimplemented features. Nonetheless, we feel that
this is good enough to release as an early beta to gather feedback
from a wider audience.
