    Yes, Virginia, TrueCrypt is still safe to use.

    "Those who believe that there is something now and suddenly “wrong” with TrueCrypt because its creators have decided that they no longer have so much to give, are misguided. TrueCrypt's creators may well be right. TrueCrypt may never be as pure and perfect as it is today ‑ as they created and perfected it. Their final true version 7.1a may be the pinnacle of this story. So anyone would and should be proud to use this beautiful tool."

    Ya, it's more the second paragraph that is the big bugaboo of a story but maybe the developers are just completely and utterly socially inept at stepping away from a project gracefully???

    It's a bit arrogant on the part of the creators to suggest they couldn't find anybody to responsibly take it over.

    "Even though the trust into the developer team has diminished drastically,"...strongly worded but still, an underestimate!...unless they know something we and GRC do not.
