  • Saving history of searches in GUI. The feature is similar to browser url bar history.
  • Better completion in CLI.
  • Password list columns in GUI are now sortable and resizable.

  • Fixed password database initialization problem. New databases should be created normally now.

  • Searching is case insensitive (as it should be).
  • Configuration infrastructure implemented. For now only one configuration option exists: save-mode.
  • Deleting of passwords implemented.
  • rmdir and mv commands were added to CLI (Patch #825957). Thanks Indygena!
  • Parser feature added. It will help you incorporate passwords from your e-mails to database more efficiently.
  • Support for fpm-0.58 databases with longer passwords (up to 256 characters). Not tested yet.
  • GUI now can display password as plain text. It is useful when you need to send password to someone.
  • Added ability to search whole password tree in one operation. The feature accessed through "Flatten" button in GUI and through "-r" flag in "show" command in CLI.
  • Various CLI and GUI usability enhancements.

Version 0.2.5 (2003-09-21)

  • Fixed fpm long password bug. Figaro password manager can't handle passwords longer that 24 characters. Ked Password manager will allow you to save such long passwords, but it will break fpm compatibility - fpm will not handle such passwords correctly.

Version 0.2.0 (2003-09-14)

  • Added graphical user interface (GUI) frontend
  • Added ability to rename password categories

Version 0.1.0 (2003-08-20)

  • Added ability to save the password database in fpm-compatible format. If KedPM detects that it had opened a database saved by FPM, it makes a backup to ~/.fpm/fpm.kedpm.bak;
  • Improved command line interface: overall usability improvements;
  • New cli commands: 'mkdir', 'new', 'edit' and 'save';

Version 0.0.2 (2003-08-05)

  • First public release. All it can do is read Figaro Password Manager database files and display passwords to user via cli interface;
