TrueCrypt V2.1 has been released just a couple of days after V2.0.
- RIPEMD-160 hash algorithm added. The user can now select which hash
algorithm TrueCrypt will use (SHA-1 or RIPEMD-160).
- When changing a volume password, the user can now select the HMAC hash
algorithm that will be used in deriving the new volume header key.
- It is now possible to create NTFS TrueCrypt volumes and unformatted
TrueCrypt volumes. This enhancement also removes the 2,048 GB volume
size limit. (Only FAT volumes can be created using the previous versions
of TrueCrypt. Any FAT volume, encrypted or not, cannot be over 2,048 GB.)
- Header key content is now displayed in the Volume Creation Wizard window
(instead of salt).
- Random pool, master key, and header key contents can be prevented from
being displayed in the Volume Creation Wizard window.
- When there is a mounted TrueCrypt container that is stored in another
TrueCrypt container, it will be possible to dismount both of them using
the 'Dismount All' function, and 'blue screen' errors will not occur
upon system shutdown.
- Minor bug fixes to command line handling.
- Several minor improvements to the driver.
- Released under the original E4M license to avoid potential problems
relating to the GPL license (added the IDEA patent information and
specific legal notices).
