The new version 4.3 of the TrueCrypt file system encryptor now runs on the Windows Vista operating system (32 and 64 bit) and its User Account Control system (UAC). The software's drivers and program files are now digitally signed, and the developers have remedied a number of flaws. The new version can work with devices that use sector sizes other than 512 bytes, such as USB flash memory drives, DVD-RAM drives, and MP3 players. On Windows XP, 2003, and Vista, the software performs encryption based on a GPT partition table (GUID partition). Furthermore, the developers have revised parts of the TrueCrypt device driver. The change log for the Open Source software lists all of the changes and flaws that have been remedied.
