What's new in this version:

New Features:
- Key transformation library: KeePass can now use Windows' CNG/BCrypt API for key transformations (about 50% faster than the KeePass built-in key transformation code; by increasing the amount of rounds by 50%, you'll get the same waiting time as in 2.07, but the protection against dictionary and guessing attacks is raised by a factor of 1.5; only Windows Vista and higher).
- Added support for sending keystrokes (auto-type) to windows that are using different keyboard layouts.
- Added option to remember key file paths (enabled by default).
- Added internal editor for text files (text only and RTF formatted text; editor can edit entry attachments).
- Internal data viewer: added support for showing rich text (text with formatting).
- Added inheritable group settings for disabling auto-type and searching for all entries in this group (see tab 'Behavior'); for new recycle bins, both properties are set to disabled.
- Added new placeholders: {DB_PATH}, {DB_DIR}, {DB_NAME}, {DB_BASENAME}, {DB_EXT}, {ENV_DIRSEP}, {DT_SIMPLE}, {DT_YEAR}, {DT_MONTH}, {DT_DAY}, {DT_HOUR}, {DT_MINUTE}, {DT_SECOND}, {DT_UTC_SIMPLE}, {DT_UTC_YEAR}, {DT_UTC_MONTH}, {DT_UTC_DAY}, {DT_UTC_HOUR}, {DT_UTC_MINUTE}, {DT_UTC_SECOND}.
- The password character picking dialog now supports pre-defining the number of characters to pick; append :k in the placeholder to specify a length of k (for example, {PICKPASSWORDCHARS3:5} would be a placeholder with ID 3 and would pick 5 characters from the password); advantage: when having picked k characters, the dialog closes automatically, i.e. saves you to click [OK].
- IDs in {PICKPASSWORDCHARSn} do not need to be consecutive anymore.
- The password character picking dialog now first dereferences passwords (i.e. placeholders can be used here, too).
- Added '-minimize' command line option.
- Added '-iousername', '-iopassword' and '-iocredfromrecent' command line options.
- Added '--auto-type' command line option.
- Added support for importing FlexWallet 1.7 XML files.
- Added option to disable protecting the clipboard using the CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE clipboard format.
- Added support for WebDAV URLs (thanks to Ryan Press).
- Added shortcut keys in master key prompt dialog.
- Added entry templates functionality (first specify an entry templates group in the database settings dialog, then use the 'Add Entry' toolbar drop-down button).
- Added AceCustomConfig class (accessible through host interface), that allows plugins to store their configuration data in the KeePass configuration file.
- Added ability for plugins to store custom data in KDBX database files (PwDatabase.CustomData).
- Added interface for custom password generation algorithm plugins.
- URLs in the entry preview window are now always clickable (especially including cmd:// URLs).
- Added option to copy URLs to the clipboard instead of opening them (Options -> Interface, turned off by default).
- Added option to automatically resize entry list columns when resizing the main window (turned off by default).
- Added 'Sync' command in KPScript scripting tool.
- Added FIPS compliance problems self-test (see FAQ for details about FIPS compliance).
- Added Rijndael/AES block size validation and configuration.
- Added NotifyIcon workaround for Mono under Mac OS X.
- Added confirmation box for empty master passwords.
- Added radio buttons in auto-type sequence editing dialog to choose between the default entry sequence and a custom one.
- Added hint that group notes are shown in group tooltips.
- Added test for KeePass 1.x plugins and an appropriate error message.
- Added interface for writing master password requirements validation plugins.
- Key provider plugin API: enhanced key query method by a context information object.
- Key provider plugin API: added 'DirectKey' property to key provider base class that allows returning keys that are directly written to the user key data stream.
- Key provider plugin API: added support for exclusive plugins.
- The '-keyfile' command line option now supports selecting key providers (plugins).
- Auto-Type: added option to send an Alt keypress when only the Alt modifier is active (option enabled by default).
- Added warning when trying to use only Alt or Alt-Shift as global hot key modifier.
- TrlUtil: added search functionality and toolbar.
- TrlUtil: version is now shown in the window title.

Improvements / Changes:
- Improved database file versioning and changed KDBX file signature in order to prevent older versions from corrupting newer files.
