    Changes from 2.12 to 2.13:

    New Features:
    Password quality estimation algorithm: added check for about 1500 most common passwords (these are rated down to 1/8th of their statistical rating; Bloom filter-based implementation).
    Global auto-type (using a system-wide hot key) is now possible on Unix-like systems (see the documentation for setup instructions, section 'Installation / Portability' in the 'KeePass 2.x' group; thanks to Jordan Sissel for enhancing 'xdotool').
    Added IPC functionality for Unix-like systems.
    Added possibility to write export plugins that don't require an output file.
    Tag lists are sorted alphabetically now.
    Password text boxes now use a monospace font by default.
    Added option to select a different font for password text boxes (menu 'Tools' -> 'Options' -> tab 'Interface').
    Added support for importing Password Prompter 1.2 DAT files.
    Added ability to export to Windows/IE favorites.
    Added ability to specify IO credentials in the 'Synchronize' trigger action.
    Added ability to specify IO credentials and a master key in the 'Open database file' trigger action.
    If IO credentials are stored, they are now obfuscated.
    Custom colors in the Windows color selection dialog are now remembered.
    Added high resolution version of the KeePass application icon.
    Improved lock overlay icon (higher resolution).
    PLGX loader: added support for unversioned KeePass assembly references.

    Improvements / Changes:
    Added workaround to avoid alpha transparency corruption when adding images to an image list.
    Improved image list generation performance.
    Added workaround to display the lock overlay icon when having enabled the option to start minimized and locked.
    Improved group and entries deletion confirmation dialogs (with preview; only Windows Vista and higher).
    The password character picking dialog now offers the raw password characters instead of an auto-type encoded sequence.
    PINs importer: improved importing of expiry dates.
    Some button icons are now resized to 16x15 when the 16x16 icon is too large.
    Renamed character repetition option in the password generator for improved clarity.
    Improved workspace locking.
    Locking timer is now thread-safe.
    Added code to prevent loading libraries from the current working directory (to avoid binary planting attacks).
    Removed Tomboy references (on Unix-like systems).
    Various code optimizations.
    Minor other improvements.

    Bugfixes:
    {NEWPASSWORD} placeholder: special characters in generated passwords are now transformed correctly based on context (auto-type, command line, etc.).



    Changes from 1.17 to 1.18:

    New Features:
    Password quality estimation algorithm: added check for about 1500 most common passwords (these are rated down to 1/8th of their statistical rating; Bloom filter-based implementation).
    {GOOGLECHROME} placeholder: updated detection code to also support the latest versions of Chrome.
    KeePass now enables data execution prevention (DEP).
    Improved lock overlay icon (higher resolution).

    Improvements:
    Improved character classification in password quality estimation algorithm.
    Improved group and entries deletion confirmation dialogs (only Windows Vista and higher).
    Items in the update checking, plugin and icon picker dialogs aren't underlined anymore when hovering over them.
    The default expiry interval for new entries is now limited to a maximum of 8 years.
    Renamed character repetition option in the password generator for improved clarity.
    Added code to prevent loading libraries from the current working directory (to avoid binary planting attacks).
    Installer: various minor improvements.
    Various code optimizations.
    Minor other improvements.

    Anyone using this new version along with KeeFox and KeyFormFF plugins? (As a Firefox user, I love the KeePass+KeeFox+KeeFormFF combination, but just want to make sure that it will continue to work before I update).
