No malice implied. My apologies if I was unclear.

I just feel that using publicly-abandoned security software,
particularly when it hadn't been updated in the two years leading up
to its abandonment and used old, crufty build dependencies[1] that
hadn't been updated in decades, is probably unwise if one desires a
high degree of security.

Don't get me wrong: I really like TrueCrypt and think it was a great
cross-platform disk encryption program that was remarkably easy to
use, but using it as a part of new projects probably isn't a good
