Affected tool:
Password Manager

Description

Several steps changed:

  • creating, managing and saving a database is done via the menu entry Database (previous menu File was removed)
  • creation of a database is a bit different
  • there is no Help ▸ KeePassX Handbook… anymore, so maybe we should point to the KeePassX website
  • saving a database is a bit different (other menu name, text box name is File name and there is no Persistent entry in the left pane, but it's in the list above)
  • a persistent saved database with the name keepassx won't be used as default after rebooting. Apparently it's needed to open the database manually after starting KeePassX

Note that we mentioned we should explain that after the migration to Stretch/keepassx2, the old keepassx v1 database will remain in the Persistent folder. Up to them to decide what to do with it.

It would be nice to have an assignee here, to avoid the situation when everyone thinks somebody else will do it :)

Very good doc, I reproduced all steps and it's all alright.
However, I updated the config file name that is needed for persistent storage of KeePassX, and I simplified the wording as you proposed with "Only say 'password database' in the first occurence of each section".

That's it!
