[Discuss] CipherShed: TrueCrypt fork

Speaking of full disk encryption, TrueCrypt has been forked...

CipherShed: A replacement for TrueCrypt

  While the Open Crypt Audit Project, headed by cryptographer Matthew
  Green and Kenneth White, Principal Scientist at Social & Scientific
  Systems, has been considering whether to take over the development of
  TrueCrypt and is working on the second phase of the audit of TrueCrypt's developers has expressed his disapproval
  of a project that would fork the software.
  But, as the need for a secure alternative to TrueCrypt is great, there
  have been attempts to fork the software. ... The developers, who in
  this case are publicly known, have renamed the fork into CipherShed.
  They are now auditing the TrueCrypt code for security issues and are
  cleaning up the code, and according to project initiator Jos
  Doekbrijder, an alpha release of CipherShed will be made available for
  download soon.
