- Update to 2.42.1
  New Features:
  * Added main menu items 'Group', 'Entry' and 'Find', which contain all commands related to groups and entries (supersets of context menus); removed 'Edit' main menu item, because all of its commands are included in the three new main menu items.
  * Added support for a system-wide hot key to auto-type only the password of a matching entry; by default, the hot key is Ctrl+Alt+Shift+A, changeable in the options dialog.
  * When double-clicking the URL cell of an entry in the main entry list while holding down the Shift key, KeePass now copies the URL to the clipboard (a double-click without Shift continues to open the URL; the option 'Copy URLs to clipboard instead of opening them' reverses this behavior).
  * Added quick edit commands 'Expires: Now' and 'Expires: Never'.
  * There now are two commands for copying a whole entry to the clipboard: 'Copy Entry (Encrypted)' and 'Copy Entry (Unencrypted)'; the first one encrypts the data for the current user using the Windows DPAPI.
  * Added Ctrl+Shift+P shortcut for printing the currently selected group.
  * The creation time and the last modification time of an entry are now displayed on the 'History' tab of the entry editing dialog.

  * The language selection dialog now also lists KeePass 1.x LNG files; when trying to select such a file, an informative error message is displayed.
  * Added 'Cancel' command in the context menu of KeePass' system tray icon, which can be used to abort opening and saving a database file.
  * Added '-cancel' command line option, which causes all other KeePass instances to cancel opening/saving a database file.
  * Added '-auto-type-password' command line option (other running KeePass instances auto-type only the password of a matching entry).
  * Added '-e1:' command line parameter, which works like '-e:', but is handled by only one other instance; '-e:' is handled by all other instances.
  * When compiling a PLGX plugin, KeePass now defines a 'KP_V_*_*_*' symbol, where the asterisks specify the KeePass version (for example, 'KP_V_2_42_0' for version 2.42).
  * Added workarounds for .NET Caps Lock warning tooltip bug.
  * Added workaround for Mono grid view default color bug.

  * Turning off the 'Unhide Passwords' policy now enforces hiding passwords in a few more places/situations.
  * New-line characters at the end of the output of a {CMD:...} placeholder are now removed (analogous to $(...) and `...` shell command substitutions).
  * The {URL:SCM} and {BASE:SCM} placeholders now work with arbitrary data having a ':'-terminated prefix.
  * Improved {URL:RMVSCM} and {BASE:RMVSCM} placeholders ('//' authority prefix is removed, but not '/').
  * The '-entry-url-open' command line option is now handled by all other KeePass instances (instead of only one).
  * Path traversal with attachment names is not possible anymore.
  * Removed the option 'Show tray icon only if main window has been sent to tray' from the options dialog (due to possible denial-of-service problems); if you want to hide the icon, it is recommended to configure this in the system settings instead.
  * Improved reading of KDBX XML documents with unknown elements.

    option is now ignored

    tried compilers is saved to a temporary file
