New encryption algorithm
We are happy to make available to all users the upgrade to the latest version of our encryption specification, version 004. This version uses the latest state-of-the-art, cryptographer recommended algorithms for modern day encryption and key generation, designed to withstand the latest advances in brute-forcing.
Since version 3.5, new users have been using version 004 automatically, as well as existing users who would change their password. We are now giving all users on v3.5.14+ the option to upgrade to this stronger encryption algorithm.

Other changes since v3.5.11
- Safer updates: the app will now only update itself when it detects that a recent enough ( hour) local backup is available. You can still trigger the update manually.
- Fixed: a backup decryption script was being put in the local backups folder even when automatic updates were disabled.
