PasswordSafeSWT 0.5 - Java port of PasswordSafe released

A new version, 0.5, of the Java port of PasswordSafe is now available for download ( for Linux, Mac and Win32 platforms.

This is mostly a bug-fix release (but some of the bugs were pretty nasty):

  • Fixes for compatibility with new 2.14 files
  • Completely rewritten XML import/export handling fixing numerous bugs
  • Completely rewritten plaintext import/export handling
  • New Unix script launching (much more reliable and now double-clickable) - Many thanks to Axel Schwarzer for this
  • Edit dialog now resizable and correctly handles long notes fields (and has better layout management on Mac & Linux)
  • Fix to "Show Password" button to toggle show/hide label
  • Fix to password generation bugs when no password options were set
  • Website launching fixed on Mac (and now broken on Linux... leave it with me)
  • New tree items default group to enclosing leaf
  • And stacks more user-suggested fixes

Many thanks to those who have been faithfully reporting bugs and issues.
Hopefully this release will sort out a few of the more frustrating ones.

On the CVS tree, the code is under pwsafe/Java/PasswordSafeSWT. Thanks to Glen ( for his work on this.
