Truecrypt 7.0 released

For all those who like truecrypt, version 7.0 is out there. Some of the new features are:

  • Hardware-accelerated AES
  • Now it is possible to configure TrueCrypt container on a USB flash drive to mount the drive automatically whenever you insert the USB flash drive into the USB port. This is cool.
  • Partition/device-hosted volumes can now be created on drives that use a sector size of 4096, 2048, or 1024 bytes (Windows, Linux).
  • Favorite Volumes Organizer this means that now you can organize your mounted device upon logon to system as read only or removable medium
  • The Favorites menu now contains a list of your non-system favorite volumes. When you select a volume from the list, you are asked for its password (and/or keyfiles) (unless it is cached) and if it is correct, the volume is mounted. (Windows)
