At Yaakov's suggestion, the release number is 2 (to avoid confusion with 
those who have installed the package previously from Cygwin Ports). The 
package does not have a man page by default, so I have patched in the 
man page from Debian. keepassx can be used with a Windows browser: start 
keepassx and go to Extras -> Settings -> Advanced. In "Custom Browser 
Command" give the path to your browser. If there is a space in the path, 
surround the path with quotes, e.g.:

"/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe"

Note that the Auto-type feature will not work with a native Windows 
browser, although you can still copy and paste your login credentials 

Many thanks for looking at this package,

ldesc: "KeePassX is an application for people with extremely high 
demands on secure personal data management. It saves many different 
information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments 
in one single database. The entries are sorted in groups, which are 
customizable. The complete database is always encrypted either with AES 
(alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key."
