TrueCrypt 5.0 now with Linux GUI

The TrueCrypt foundation recently released TrueCrypt version 5.0, the latest version of the Open Source disk encryption software for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.

Before version 5.0 was released, Linux users had to resort to other GUI frontends or stick with the command line version. GUI options weren’t too bad, the more advanced Forcefield GUI did everything but had a rather arcane interface. The more polished EasyCrypt GUI however had an excellent balance between features and power.

Besides a whole range of new features and improvements, TrueCrypt 5.0 now offers a native GUI for Linux users.
