TrueCrypt V2.0 Open-Source

TrueCrypt 2.0 has been released. It can be downloaded at:
http://www.freewebtown.com/a4ncg2i6op/
http://mywebpage.netscape.com/rvjtgn/

Whats new?

Bug fixes:
- Data corruption will no longer occur when a TrueCrypt partition is
subjected to heavy parallel usage (usually when copying files to or
from a TrueCrypt partition). This also fixes the problem with
temporarily inaccessible files stored in TrueCrypt partitions.
Note: File-hosted volumes were not affected by this bug.

- After dismounting and remounting a volume, its file system will be
correctly recognized by the operating system and it will be
possible to reuse the same drive letter (Windows 2000 issue).

- The main program window will not be displayed when run in quiet
mode (command line usage).

- Two password entry attempts are no longer necessary to be able to
mount a volume (command line usage).

- All partitions will be visible to TrueCrypt even if one of them is
inaccessible to the operating system (an inaccessible partition
made all successive partitions on the hard disk unavailable to
TrueCrypt).

- Relative path can be specified when mounting a file-hosted volume
(command line usage).

- Incorrect passwords are reported when auto-mounting (command line
usage).

New features:
- AES-256 (Rijndael) encryption algorithm.

- The command line option /dismountall was renamed to /dismount which
can now be also used to dismount a single volume by specifying its
drive letter.

Improvements:
- Memory pages containing sensitive data are now locked to prevent
them from being swapped to the Windows page file.

- The state of the random pool will never be exported directly so the
pool contents will not be leaked.

Miscellaneous:
- Released under GNU General Public License (GPL)

Planned for Future:
- 'Hidden' container
- Linux version
- Anti-Key-Logger Facilities
- HMAC-RIPEMD-160
- Keyfiles
- and more.

TrueCrypt V2.1 is out

TrueCrypt V2.1 has been released just a couple of days after V2.0.

New features:

- 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.

Bug fixes:

- 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.

Improvements:

- Several minor improvements to the driver.

Miscellaneous:

- Released under the original E4M license to avoid potential problems
relating to the GPL license (added the IDEA patent information and
specific legal notices).
