    TrueCrypt, the open-source free OTF encryption solution is now available in Version 3.0 and it includes major changes and many improvements.

    It now supports hidden containers within containers, new algorithms to compliment the standard AES including Serpent and Twofish. It has much better plausible deniability now, which most commercial products ignore.

    The best just got better!

    Thanks for the heads up, Gerard. I did not know 3.0 was around the corner.

    Updated December 11, 2004

    TrueCrypt 3.0a Released

    Bug fixes:

    Data corruption will not occur when data is written to a volume encrypted with Twofish or Serpent while another TrueCrypt volume is mounted (applies also to volumes encrypted using a cascade of ciphers, out of which one is Twofish or Serpent).


    Other minor bug fixes

    I downloaded this program but am not sure exactly what it is and what it does to my hard drive w/ the partitions and all. The User Guide is 44 pages long, ugh. Can you guys give me a quick run down on what it is, does and how it will affect my computer? I just don't want to register w/ yet another forum. Thanks, lazy Wraith.
