Version 2.2.0 (2013-02-27) NEW FEATURES: - password settings can be stored now as "profiles": to load, create or delete profiles, select File > Profile > ... in the main menu, or click F10 to show the profile editor - new hot key options: PWGen can be associated with a "hot key" (special key combination), which allows for quickly generating passwords, for example - new "advanced" password option "Reverse default order of character/word combinations" (see manual for more details) - new "Generate" button (symbol next to the button for generating multiple passwords): enables writing the generated passwords directly to a file instead of displaying them in a window; process is independent of any RAM restrictions and practically only limited by free disk space CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS: - speed of password list generation increased significantly, particularly when duplicate entries are to be excluded - memory usage for password list generation improved (i.e., lower memory requirements) - max. number of passwords in password lists increased to 2,000,000,000 - max. size of password lists increased to 500,000,000 bytes - max. number of words in word lists increased to 1,048,576 (corresponding to 20 bits of entropy per word) - "footnotes" in the "Advanced Password Options" dialog changed in order to clarify for which kinds of passwords (pass*words*, pass*phrases* or formatted passwords) each option refers to - random pool uses HMAC-SHA-256 instead of plain SHA-256 now (HMAC has allegedly better random extraction properties) FIXES: - character set was not updated correctly in some cases
