Download PasswordMaker Javascript Edition 2.1

Release Notes:
  • Encryption of master password changed from AES 128-bit to AES 256-bit. The most secure approach is still to not store your master password at all.
  • Generated passwords can now be any length. Previously, maximum password length was limited by the number of characters in the character set and the selected hash algorithm. This is no longer the case.
  • Discontinued use of the Sarissa Javascript XML libary because it doesn't work with Opera, Blackberry browser, and others. Settings are now stored in an escaped, pipe-delimited cookie named "settings2" instead of the previous cookie, "settings", whose content was XML.
  • The key used to encrypt the master password (if it's chosen to be stored in the cookie) now uses all hex digits instead of just 0-9.
