Description

The database format of KeePassX 2 is incompatible with KeePassX < 2 and the file extension is now kdbx instead od kbd. You can migrate a database to the new format but you cannot migrate back. We should make a plan for our users to migrate their database to the new format.

Implementation was merged, I'll let you decide whether you want to review the UX now or once #12375 is done.

#5 Updated by intrigeri 9 months ago

Let's add reviewing some strings (#12375#note-8) to the scope of this ticket.

#6 Updated by intrigeri 9 months ago

  • Target version changed from Tails_3.0 to Tails_3.0~rc1

(Some of the corresponding code will go into 3.0~beta4 and the last bits will go into 3.0~rc1. Feel free to explicitly give up or to ask me to handle it myself — with my poorer UX skills — if you're too busy.)

I tested the migration and, apart from the issue I'm raising in #12375#note-17, I'm very happy with the result!

I'm marking this ticket as resolved as #12375 is being dealt with somewhere else.
