    hi

    is really truecrypt abandonware?

    tc next _https://truecrypt.ch/ doesn't in 5 or more months release nothing

    CipherShed seems to be for mac only and they don't release even a beta to test

    in short a great software like truecrypt is really gone?

    See DiskCryptor and VeraCrypt.

    veracrypt sadly is incompatible with truecypt volumes

    Veracrypt is now compatible with TC. Maybe you referenced old article.

    That is due to increased iteration to delay brute force. They significantly increased iteration count so that any adversary can't break encryption for maybe almost 10 years. I don't say it is wrong direction, but I rather hope they put an option which allows user to choose iteration count.
