PocketPasswords 2.0.1543 Beta | Come and get it

Postby alorbach » Tue Mar 23, 2004 6:45 pm

Ok folks it has been quiet a while since the last update on the development of PocketPasswords 2.0.
But finally after all this month of waiting, there is the first beta version ready ;).
PocketPasswords 2.0 has been completely rewritten by using the Compact Framework.

First of all here is a little screenshot teaser :)


Here is a list of new features and changes:

- Sorting (!!!) ;) - You can now sort an group of entries ( a whole category ) either ascending or descending.
- Implemented real 128 bit encryption. Your data will now encrypted with a real 128 Bit key generated out of your password. Note that the encryption can now be disabled and enabled to any time. If you disable encryption, the login dialog will not be used anymore when you start PocketPasswords.
- Categories can now be defined dynamically. Future Version of PocketPasswords will include a category editor. At the moment, categories can only be added manually by editing the new xml files of PocketPasswords.
- Added new category "Software keys" which is basically designed to store License keys of Software you bought.
- Faster loading and saving of data (Users with many entries will experience a much faster PocketPasswords now).
- Line breaks in Description field are now allowed.
- Delete - Entries can now be deleted from the Treeview. You don't need to open them first anymore.
- Import - PocketPasswords 2.0 contains a function to import all your data from PocketPasswords 1.0

How data is stored:
PocketPasswords now uses XML files to store it's data. Instead to PocketPasswords 1.0, there is one file for each category (which helps to increase the save and load speed). These files are unreadable for you usually, because they are encrypted. But if you disable encryption, you are able to read and edit them. WARNING! Do not edit these files unless you know what you are doing. An error in this files can cause unexpected results within PocketPasswords.
