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 sticks 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: -------------- Version 2.6.0 (2015-09-02) NEW FEATURES: - new "Advanced" password options "Each character/word must occur only once"; for formatted passwords, this option can be activated by specifying an asterisk (*) symbol between the "%" character and the format specifier; e.g., "%*16A" inserts 16 unique alphanumeric characters - in formatted passwords, a number range in the form "x-y" can be specified to insert a random number between x and y of random characters from a character set; e.g., "%5-10L" inserts at least 5 and at most 10 random letters - new "Provide Additional Entropy" window with a text box where you can enter or paste any text (preferably from volatile, non-static sources containing a certain amount of randomness), which is compressed to roughly estimate its entropy content and then added to the random pool - beginning with this version, PWGen will display a checksum of the setup file (PWGen-xxx-setup.exe) in the update notification message box (i.e., when a new version is available) CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS: - "File Encoding" setting moved from "File" menu into "Configuration" dialog (sheet "Files") to make the program settings more consistent - maximum number of profiles increased from 36 to 50 (note that the profiles from #37 onwards cannot be loaded via keyboard shortcuts) - when the user tests passwords by entering text into the password box in the main window, the security bits value is marked with an asterisk (*) symbol (instead of a change in color) FIXES: - keyboard shortcuts changed from Ctrl+Shift+<X> (<X> = 0, ..., 9, A, ..., Z) to Ctrl+Alt+<X> (the first combination didn't work properly on Windows 7) - allow storing negative window positions in case of multiple monitors (when certain windows were positioned outside the primary screen, they were re-positioned in the center of the primary screen upon restart) - in formatted passwords, the security of permuted sequences (via "%N{...%}") was not calculated correctly if N was smaller than the original character sequence within the brackets - opening the user manual from the "Help" menu sometimes caused the program to crash
