Buttercup 1.15.0
Cross-platform, free and open-source password manager

Password managers are becoming a dime a dozen lately with tools such as 1Password, LastPass, KeePass and lesser known managers such as Dashlane. So, the question is: do we have room for one more password manager? And can you trust a new upstart developed by the community?

Whilst there are many commercial password managers, not everyone can afford or justify a subscription service and look towards the freeware model. This is what Buttercup aims to solve, by offering a free solution which synchronises your data across every platform, enabling you to merge current databases across Windows, Mac and Linux. This means you enter your password once and it's available immediately on your Windows desktop or Mac laptop. There are web browser plugins for Firefox and Chrome, which will enable you to automatically drop in the relevant username/password (from the Buttercup database) when you're attempting to login to a web account.

Synchronisation is handled by the cloud and Buttercup currently supports Dropbox, owncloud, Nextcloud and any other service which uses WebDAV to synchronise data.

Buttercup is super-easy to use and features a very minimal user interface. When you first start the application, it will ask you to import an existing database from other password managers. After this, you can easily create new entries to add your favourite website login information and other important personal data.

The application also enables you to easily group all your entries so you can easier manage all your passwords, so, for instance, you can have one group for all your banking/financial information and another group for your social media information and another for your online shopping, and more.

All your data is stored within Buttercup using the latest AES 256bit CBC mode with a SHA256 HMAC encryption, meaning your information is safe from prying eyes.

What's new in 1.15.0 (see changelog for more)?

We have revamped the way the password dialog works across the board #744
New password strength meter when setting a new password #531 #62
Accessibility: a tooltip for the password generator button #731
Disabled auto downloading of icons to mitigate security concerns, and instead icons for some popular sites are bundled with the app. #519
Improvements to "Warn before losing unsaved entry" feature #738 #741
Catalan locale #745
Improved French locale #737
Security warnings in the developer console #716

Verdict:

This is a very simple password manager. We really like it. The only issue is some people will take issue with the security of personal information and sensitive data managed by a free app developed by the community.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
