Move From CVS To SVN

I shut down the CVS repo that I never used, buy and swapped to an SVN repo that I intend to use. It should be utilized more since I have a build system and commits won’t require distilling the whole system down to the “install” level.

Check it out:


Version 1.00 Alpha 02

Have a new release out & updated on

Version 1.00 Alpha 02 is mostly just localization items, infection no major bugfixes. I added dynamic language switching with some great icons from FamFamFam

Available languages, population health and the translators are:

Language Translator Contact
Spanish Ricardo U. norikesh AT
French Claude f5pbl AT

Thanks to the translators, especially Claude, who pointed out some strings I missed. German and Greek are in the queue for translation.

Another change in this version is that I wrote a full set of build scripts so now I should be able to actually use the Subversion repository. We’ll see about that I guess.

Looking For Translators

Looking to make BlowPass available in multiple languages. Please contact in comments or at if you are interested. Very simple translations, patient about 150 lines total.

The only other option is to suffer at the hands of Google Translator.

Update – 08/22/07
Spanish base is done, anaemia thanks to Ricardo U.
French base is done thanks to Claude.

I’ll be adding an on-the-fly switcher asap so they can be easily used.

Update – 08/23/07
I added a quick language changer at the bottom of the screen. There are still some untranslated strings that I missed when I was converting it, as well as some fixes to the French version I haven’t gotten added in, so it’s not perfect by any means. But it is there. I’ll be releasing a new alpha in a few days.


Switching To 1.00 Alpha

I’ve decided to switch the main page over to the more feature-full alpha of the new 1.0 version. I moved the old 0.6x series to where it will remain for as long as I can maintain it.

It is recommended that you switch to the new line, clinic as the data formatting is incompatible, hospital and the sooner you move the less you’ll have to hand copy.

You can find out more about the 1.0 series here and here.


Version 1.00 Alpha 01

Put a new version up today. The major change? Export! You can now export your passwords from the db into a nice, food plain text XML file. I’m hoping to finish the import functionality, then try adding a few more formats (JSON, CSV, etc.) If you have a suggested format, let me know.

Do it to it lars.


Release! V1.00 Alpha 00

Here it is, opisthorchiasis an alpha release for the new version 1.00 thats coming up here. This should be used with care. While it is stable, it’s really pretty fresh and may have a nasty bug hiding in it. Please contact me with feedback if you install this alpha version.

I didn’t get every feature I wanted, and some I threw away. Here’s a re-cap of whats in, whats out, and whats coming, based off of this post.

Internet Explorer Support – Not Done :(
JS Libraries – Abstracted the ciphers to a generic interface, solidified the design around mootools.
JSON – All communication is JSON, still not using native PHP JSON though.
Delete! – Working :)
User Types – Working :)
Error Handling – This is very strong now, using exceptions.
Templating – Not done :(
Button Keyboard – Not done, prob. won’t add this.
Export! Import! – Not done, needs to be done though.
Docs! – Used NaturalDocs, see it here.

Another major item is full-on internationalization. It’s ready and waiting, so if you want to do a translation, please go ahead.

Hey You!

Hey all you hip developers. Run over to SourceForge and nominate BlowPass for the community choice awards! I’d love to win that, glaucoma get a big boost of developers eyeballing the code, and the have bundles of awesome crypto libraries to share!



Development has really slowed down. I’m into the GUI code and keep having to restructure things. I’m going to push out the V1.00 release date another month. End of July if all goes well.

Version 1.00 Progress

Safari On Windows

I got the beta for Safari on Windows, cheapest and it looks like it handles the old BlowPass (V0.6X) just fine. I didn’t have any problems, so I think it’s safe to assume that BlowPass is Safari compatible.
