Supergibbs writes: "Today, the next major version of TrueCrypt 5.0 was released. TrueCrypt is an awesome, open source security application that allows you to make an encrypted drive or partition. Great for a secure USB drive. It's cross platform and supports a variety of encryption algorithms. As of this submission, the site is overwhelmed but when the dust clears go check it out.
