TrueCrypt 7.0a released
The TrueCrypt release team has issued the first update to version 7.0 of its open source, cross platform, disk encryption tool. According to the developers, TrueCrypt 7.0a is a maintenance release that includes a workaround for an issue in some custom, non-Microsoft storage device controller drivers on Windows systems (Vista, 7, 2008, 2008 R2) that can cause a system to crash when entering hibernation on TrueCrypt-encrypted operating systems. Additionally, the update includes a number of minor improvements and bug fixes across all platforms. The developers advise all users to upgrade.
Further information about the update can be found in the version history. TrueCrypt 7.0a is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. TrueCrypt is released under the TrueCrypt License Version 3.0 and donations are accepted to support the project.
