The long-anticipated version 5.0 of Truecrypt, the disk-encryption software, became available today.

With 5.0 there's now a Mac OS X version and the Linux version has a GUI. Other improvements include XTS mode, SHA-512 hashing, huge speed improvement under Windows and the ability to encrypt a Windows system partition with pre-boot authentication.
