Re: Pass password via environment variable
Unfortunately I can't make any comments about future release
plans. I think that it's ok for me to say that we're aware that
1.0.39 was a few years ago, and we're working towards a new
release with appropriate speed.
As with all security/privacy-related software, "appropriate speed"
means "with a great deal of caution". :)
