Password Safe 3.15.1 has been released and may be downloaded from here (U3 version here). This is a minor release - some annoying bugs have been fixed, some features have been added or improved upon. 
Thanks to DK for his work on this, and to all the folks who reported bugs and tested the Beta version of this release.

In addition to this release, we're releasing a version 3.15Y of PasswordSafe that supports the YubiKey authentication token. More details here.

Bugs fixed in 3.15.1
  • [2429189, 2429675] No longer requires MFC dll to run. (If you've already downloaded and successfully installed 3.15, then there's no need to upgrade to this version).
Bugs fixed in 3.15
  • [2407346] "Open Another" and "Create New" actions in "Incorrect Passkey" dialog box working again.

  • [2113261] No longer crashes when opening write-protected database.

New Features for 3.15
  • Implement the CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE feature supported by some Clipboard Viewers.
  • Add feature to display a subset of the password. This is useful for websites that need different particular characters from a password at each login. To access this, select an item, right-click and choose Display Subset of Password.
  • [2203438] Remove "[alt]", "[ssh]" and "{alt}" special keywords from URL when copying to the clipboard.
  • [2144489] Click on the text next to edit fields to copy the field to the clipboard. Ctrl+Click on the URL will launch the browser. Text will flash to show what it has done (green - copy, pink - launch).

YubiKey Authentication Support
YubiKey is a USB authentication device that sends a different authentication key each time it's activated. This provides a convenient alternative to constantly typing in a passphrase for heavy users of PasswordSafe. To use, just "associate" your YubiKey with your PasswordSafe datasbase, using the new Manage->YubiKey dialog. For more details, please refer to the online help.
Currently, support for this device is implemented in a separate PasswordSafe package, 3.15Y. Your feedback will determine if and how this will be merged into the main product.
