Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, KeePassX is an open source application used for password-management, enabling the users to create, store, generate and edit passwords. It encrypts the passwords and databases via the AES or Twofish algorithms, providing security for the user’s passwords.
The latest version available is KeePassX 2.0 Alpha 5, which has been recently released. Among others, it comes with support for opening the latest database used on app launch, support drag and drop, the ability to remove multiple entries and support for editing entries via double-click.
