KeePassXC Password Manager 2.1.3 is now in our test repository. It's an actively developed community fork of the dormant KeePassX project, and has more features and bug fixes.

Additional features compared to KeePassX

Auto-Type on all three major platforms (Linux, Windows, OS X)
Stand-alone password generator
Password strength meter
YubiKey HMAC-SHA1 authentication for unlocking databases
Using website favicons as entry icons
Merging of databases
Automatic reload when the database changed on disk
KeePassHTTP support for use with PassIFox in Mozilla Firefox and chromeIPass in Google Chrome or Chromium.
Many bug fixes

Install was painless and the new features are really nice. The website favicon downloader is so convenient, now I don't have to find my own icons. Thanks for packaging!

KeepassXC is now being maintained in upstream Debian, so we now have a Qt 5 backport of 2.2.4 in the test repository.

KeepassXC came out on top in a shootout of open-source password managers in February's Linux Format magazine.

We are now moving 2.3.4 to the main repo, since it seems to be working well, plus is needed for the browser extensions to work.
