KeePass Password Manager for Linux Ubuntu. Install KeePass 2.35 stable release on Ubuntu 16.10 and Ubuntu 16.04 Systems. KeePass 2.35 is recommended to upgrade from any previous 2.x version to 2.35.
KeePass 2.35 mainly features a new database file format, user interface enhancements, and various other minor new features and improvements. Hash sums and OpenPGP signatures for integrity checking are available, and program binaries are digitally signed (Authenticode). New translations are available, too. With this release, Plugins can provide other key derivation functions now and Plugins can now store custom data in groups and entries.
KeePass 2.35: Features
- New KDBX 4 file format, which supports various new features (listed below; e.g. Argon2).

- Added configuration option that specifies the number of days within which entries are considered to expire ‘soon’ (the default is 7).
