This is just a quick post to announce the release of FreeOTFE v5.00 and
FreeOTFE4PDA v5.00.


What's new in FreeOTFE v5.00:

*) Significant performance improvements made to driver code
*) Added XTS mode to Gladman cyphers (AES, MARS, RC-6, Serpent and Twofish)
*) Added RIPEMD-256 and RIPEMD-320 hash algorithms
*) Added support for dropping keyfiles onto the password entry dialog to
simplify keyfile filename entry
*) Added automatic check for updates (turned off by default)
*) Allow option to change the default mount type used
*) Allow various options to turn on/off confirmation/warning messages
*) Allow users to mount volumes as A: or B: if these drive letters aren't
in use. Note: Selecting "Use default" for the drive to mount as will
still result in using the first unused drive letter after C: - A:/B: may
only be used if explicitly selected by the user
*) Added support for "refresh" multimedia key
*) Added "/create" command line option for creating new volumes
*) Added "/settings" command line parameter to read options from user
specified location
*) Created U3 and portableapps.com specific installers, simplifying
installation for users of these particular systems
*) Removed restriction requiring hidden volumes to begin at an offset which
is a multiple of 512 bytes
*) Allow mounting either Linux LUKS or FreeOTFE partitions via the
"Partition" toolbar button and "File | Mount partition..." menuitem
(previously only FreeOTFE partitions could be mounted this way)
*) Fixed minor bug which prevented hidden volumes from being automatically
mounted after being created
*) Fixed minor bug with "minimise to system tray" functionality
*) Fixed bug causing main window to resize continuously if toolbar not
shown

FreeOTFE can be downloaded from:

What's new in FreeOTFE4PDA v5.00:

*) Optimised mount performance
*) Added functionality to support language translations
*) Added support for Linux LUKS volumes
*) Added XTS mode to Gladman cyphers (AES, MARS, RC-6, Serpent and Twofish)
*) Added RIPEMD-256 and RIPEMD-320 hash algorithms
*) Added option to volume creation wizard to mount new volumes after
creating them
*) Added "/create", "/noexit" and "/silent" command line options
*) Add confirmation message when exiting "Options" dialog with "Save
settings" option turned off
*) Removed redundant message shown on dismounting volumes
*) Corrected fault requiring hidden volumes to begin at an offset which is
a multiple of 512 bytes
