Since I couldn't find any info on KPM development path (unlike KIS and KAV), I thought maybe some of you guys knew anything. I've read on a few occassions that even cloud support is being worked on. But that was back in 2011 and to this day there hasn't been any news.
I hope this product doesn't see the same faith as Kaspersky KryptoStorage which was eventually stopped from being sold separatelly.
I've gone through the effort of comparing these two versions just to show you guys what I mean. Clearly, Kaspersky Pasword Manager v5 looks inferior with an outdated user interface and here are some of the pictures to show it.
Adding new account
(notice the "password expires" field which is absent in v5)Version 5: Pure version:
(notice the "password history" tab which is absent in v5)Version 5: Pure version:
(this is the most important difference; v5 has no group management whatsoever. You can only drag&drop at a primitive level but can't move entries into groups more than one at a time and you don't have dedicated controls for it)Version 5: Pure version:
Pictures say more than words. I'd love to hear your comments on this, maybe some news of future improvement? Anyway, I don't see a reason not to release this new version as a standalone product. Instead it's being kept strictly reserved for Pure.
