NOTES ON THE DOWNLOADABLE FILES: -------------------------------- PWGen-xxx.zip : contains PWGen binary (PWGen.exe) & manual *without* installer/setup; simply extract the contents of the .zip file into a folder of your choice and execute PWGen.exe; useful for portable applications (USB stick etc.) PWGen-xxx-Setup.exe : contains setup for installing PWGen on your hard disk PWGen-xxx-Src.zip : contains source code (C/C++, Borland C++ Builder) RELEASE NOTES: -------------- NEW FEATURES: - new "Configuration" dialog allows changing the main configuration of the program within one window; dialog can be opened by clicking on the new "tools" button in the toolbar or via the main menu, i.e., Options / Configuration; several options which have previously been accessible via the "Options" menu have been moved to this window: GUI font selection, options concerning the system tray, and "hot key" settings - new option "Clear clipboard automatically": if it is activated, the clipboard will be cleared automatically after a certain time (e.g., 10 seconds) whenever the user copies generated passwords to the clipboard - new option "Automatic check for updates": enables automatic checks on start-up at regular intervals (i.e., daily, weekly, or monthly); you can also disable this option and manually check for updates (via Help / Check for Updates) - new "Advanced" password option "Only include characters from custom character set": this option refers to the "Include at least one ..." (letter/digit/ special symbol) options and means that if the latter options are activated, only characters (letters/digits/special symbols) from the user-defined (custom) character set will be included in the generated passwords; for example, if the custom set is "abcdEFGH" and the option "Include at least one lower-case letter" as well as the new option are activated, passwords will contain at least one lower-case letter from the set "abcd" - new option "Encrypt & Copy" in the context menu of password boxes: encrypts the selected text and copies the ciphertext to the clipboard---no need to copy the plaintext to the clipboard first before calling the "Encrypt clipboard" function CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS: - button for "Create random data file" has been removed to make room for the new "tools" button (see above) - the caption of the "Advanced" button in the main window is now marked with "(!)" when the user has selected options which could potentially reduce the security of passwords FIXES: - fatal error occurred when PWGen was started minimized and the icon in the system tray was right-clicked for the first time (thanks to Emil for reporting!)
