Version 2.1.0 (2012-11-12) NEW FEATURES: - new option "Format Password": allows you to fully customize the passwords by providing a pattern-based generation using placeholders (for inserting characters from various character sets) and other format specifiers (e.g., for permuting character sequences) - introduction of command line switches - ambiguous characters may be provided in groups of similar-looking characters (e.g., "B8 G6 I1l| 0OQD S5 Z2") - new "Advanced" option "Convert all words in word lists to lower-case" - word lists are loaded automatically - new "quick help" buttons for character set & word list box - new option "Enabled Password Testing" in context menu of password box: enables the user to manipulate the contents of the box and let PWGen estimate the security of the entered sequence - new "password quality bar" below the password box: length & color of the bar signify security of the generated password (the longer & greener, the better) - random seed file is created/overwritten in order to preserve entropy collected during runtime CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS: - function "Generate Password" in the context menu of the PWGen system tray icon can generate all kinds of passwords now (i.e., not limited to characters any more) - text encryption scheme changed: HMAC of the plaintext (instead of the ciphertext) is generated, full 256 bits of HMAC-SHA-256 are used; an encrypted 4-byte identification string serves to quickly check the key without having to compute the full HMAC; these changes allow for using other encryption algorithms besides AES in future versions - backwards compatibility for old encryption scheme (PWGen <2.1.0) is provided in the password dialog by a checkbox - random pool design changed (security increased) - design of the random pool progress bar (and of other elements) changed - version numbering changed: x.yz (old) -> x.y.z (new) FIXES: - minor fixes, but lots of internal changes in the code
