Version 2.3.0 (2013-09-08) NEW FEATURES: - full Unicode support throughout the entire application: passwords, translations, file names, word lists, text encryption, i.e., PWGen should be capable now of handling all theoretically possible 1,114,112 Unicode characters; yet PWGen should still run on Windows versions which are mostly ANSI-based (Windows 9x/Me) - variable file encoding: PWGen is capable of reading and writing Unicode text files encoded as UTF-16 little-/big-endian, UTF-8 and (non-Unicode) ANSI (as identified by the byte-order mark at the beginning of the file); the desired encoding for writing Unicode text may be changed in the main menu via File / File Encoding - generate phonetic (pronounceable) passwords: this feature has been residing on my infamous to-do list for a long, long time, but has now been realized, at last! phonetic passwords are based upon language-specific frequencies of trigrams (i.e., 3-letter combinations such as ing, riv, ...) (English by default) and can be activated by entering "<phonetic>" into the "Character set" field or using the format specifier %q in the "Format password" field; phonetic passwords generated with the default trigram table offer ~3.6 bits of entropy per letter - create "trigram files" for generating phonetic passwords (via main menu: Tools > Create Trigram File): this is particularly useful for other languages which have Latin-derived alphabets; the user can specify any text file (e.g., dictionary or word list), which is then analyzed by PWGen with respect to the frequencies of trigrams, and the resulting trigram table is written to a "trigram file", which can be loaded by PWGen in the "Advanced Password Options" dialog - when generating password lists to a file, passwords may be appended to the file in case it already exists - check for updates (main menu: Help > Check for Updates): PWGen checks via the Internet if a new version is available; if so, the user may be directed to the download page of the new version - the font which is used to display most of the strings in the GUI can be changed via Options / Change Font CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS: - the format of text encryption has been changed again to provide Unicode support (for texts AND passwords), but PWGen is still capable of decrypting ciphertexts which were created with an older 2.x version
