I heard about this last week but didn't have time to check it out. I can't believe it's so drama!
I'm a regular user of TrueCrypt, but I don't visit its website. I've never had to ask anything for support. It just works.
Now this is what on their website:
The only explanation that makes sense to me is: The developers were forced to (by threatening or beating) abandon this great software. Why? Because it's so good that some secrete agency simple cannot break into a TrueCrypt encrypted disk.
Now have all the reason to continue using TrueCrypt!
