* Upgrade notes to 0.9.1:*

Version 0.9.1 introduces more breakage because python-crypto was replaced by python-cryptography. Fortunately it is not as painful as the upgrade to 0.6.

BEFORE updating the package:
Backup your database (normally in .pwman)
Export your data from pwman3 using the 'export' command.

AFTER updating the package:
Remove the old database (rm .pwman)
Import the new one with:
pwman3 -i ';' pwman-export.csv
Delete your plaintext export file.

If you didn't follow those instructions, you will notice that pwman3 fails with “You entered a wrong password...”. If that happened, don’t panic, revert to 0.7.1 and carry out the instructions above.

Updated to 0.7.1.
The binary has been renamed from pwman-cli back to pwman3.

*Upgrade notes to v0.6:*

BEFORE updating the package:
Backup your database (normally in .pwman)
Export your data from pwman3 using the 'export' command.
Double-check that the exported data is human-readable to avoid losing your passwords.
Depending on the version that you are using, the exported data may be an XML file which you will have to manually convert to the new CSV-based export format.
The latest version requires the exported data to be a .csv with one line per entry using the following format:
username;url;password;notes;tags
where tags is a comma-separated list of tags.
e.g: hellokitty;http://aur.archlinux.org;secretpassword;My ArchLinux;archlinux,aur

AFTER updating the package:
Remove (or rename) the folder .pwman
Import your data with:
pwman-cli -i yourdata.csv
Test the new setup.
Delete your plaintext export file.

Note: I have experienced some issues with UTF-8 and this version.

Didn't remove the patch, but it propably can. Didn't check that.

This package is out of date - upstream now seems to have 0.0.8-1. The new version includes a fix to the sqlite code that allows for filtering based on tags.
