TrueCrypt in Version 6.2 erschienen

Die Entwickler haben heute die neuste Version von TrueCrypt frei gegeben welche folgende neuen Funktionen / Verbesserungen mit bringt:

New features:

  • The I/O pipeline now uses read-ahead buffering, which improves read performance especially on solid-state drives, typically by 30-50%.  (Windows)

Improvements, bug fixes, and security enhancements:

  • The boot loader now supports motherboards with BIOSes that reserve large amounts of base memory (typically for onboard RAID controllers). Note: In order to be able to take advantage of this improvement under Windows Vista, you will have to install Service Pack 1 or higher first. Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista resolved an issue causing a shortage of free base memory during system boot.  (Windows Vista/XP/2008/2003)
  • Mounting using the ‚Auto-Mount Devices‚ feature may take significantly less time as partitions containing unencrypted filesystems are now skipped.  (Windows)
  • When volumes that are mounted as read-only or removable are saved as favorite volumes, they are mounted as read-only and/or removable when ‚Mount Favorite Volumes‚ is used.
  • When a multiple-pass wipe algorithm is selected when performing in-place encryption of a non-system volume, the header areas will be wiped before the encrypted headers are written to the disk. Note: On an existing volume, you can perform such an operation by changing its password and/or keyfiles.  (Windows)
  • Many other minor improvements, bug fixes and security enhancements.  (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux)
