I also game under Windows and OSX, but I'm trying to stay on Linux more and more for my gaming. Most of it is in Steam, with a couple under Wine as well. I'm used to occasional graphical or sound glitches, or really laggy input problems (I'm looking at you, L4D2).
If the developers left this "message" that 7.2 might be compromised, what kind of guarantee is there that 7.1 isn't also compromised
The only kind of guarantee there is: an open, publically funded audit of the code. That's the point of this exercise, even before people realized that blindly trusting the TrueCrypt code was a mistake, and that an audit by non-government researchers was needed.
You're assuming the binary is actually compiled from the source being audited. Once the source audit is complete, AND a recompiled version FROM THAT SOURCE is available, then I might consider using TC again...
