What is pubring.kbx?

I just noticed that a couple of days ago a new file ~/.gnupg/pubring.kbx
had appeared (or last modified). Who made it and what is it for? I'm
using GnuPG 2.0.26 and its manual doesn't seem to tell anything about
this file. Obviously I have ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg too.

$ gpg2 --no-default-keyring --keyring ~/.gnupg/pubring.kbx --list-keys
gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=00)
gpg: keydb_search_first failed: Invalid packet
