    Going through all this in the final release. Looks very promising especially halving the mount time for those using strong PIM hardening on the headers. Unicode passwords can be a great entropy addition.

    I have been testing this in a VM just to keep safe until I am convinced this code is solid. Looks strong.

    There are also several speed improvements with this new version. In meantime another beta is out, so they constantly working on it. I highly recommend to use it, especially because it's available for almost all platforms.

    Love it. :-*

    i like it too
    hope it's very stable
    what i don't like is they don't support UEFI/GPT and won't support it for linux and osx system , i guess only for windows os

    Huh? It's avaible for all systems, please look here and here. On Windows UEFi support is coming. I guess soon or later if UEFI is more widely used they may handle it on every system, in meantime you can convert e.g. GPT to MBR with this guide.

    Just give the project some time.
