TrueCrypt Volume Creation Wizard no longer blocks hot keys of certain
Other minor bug fixes (Windows and Linux)
It will not be required to reinstall the TrueCrypt kernel module after
every minor Linux kernel update.
Support for latest Linux kernel (2.6.17)
Other minor improvements (Windows and Linux)
The Linux version of TrueCrypt now uses the TrueCrypt Random Number
Generator (ported from the Windows version of TrueCrypt) instead of using
only the Linux built-in random number generator. (This change was necessary
due to a flaw in the Linux built-in random number generator: Data from the
mouse and keyboard, which are the most important sources of random data, are
not read by the Linux built-in random number generator when the user has
only a USB mouse/keyboard.)
Note: The Linux version of TrueCrypt still uses the Linux built-in random
number generator. However, it is now merely one of the data sources used by
the TrueCrypt random number generator.
Interactive mount mode, which allows the user to avoid passing sensitive
parameters via command line. (Linux)
TrueCrypt volume is unmapped if mounting it to a directory fails. (Linux)
When the ‘Never Save History’ option is enabled, TrueCrypt sets its
“current directory” to the user’s home directory (in traveller mode,
to the directory from which TrueCrypt was launched) after a container or
keyfile is selected via the Windows file selector. Therefore, the Windows
file selector will not “remember” the path of the last selected
container or keyfile. (Windows)
