Debian packaging utilities for Truecrypt source helps to get Truecrypt running with a minimum of effort under Debian-based Linux systems (Debian and Ubuntu are officially supported). Truecrypt is an open source disk encryption software which uses a concept of containers to store encrypted data. The containers (or volumes) can be read transparently under Linux and Windows. The utilities create installable *.deb packages from the sources and those debs can be used in turn to install the encryption software.

Release Notes: This is a major release. Linux kernel 2.6.30 was officially tested under Debian. Launchpad team management changes were made, which affect bzr download URLs.
Release Notes: This minor release raised the kernel version to 2.6.30. Minor improvements were made in manual pages and within the sources. The Debian policy was upgraded to 3.8.2.
Release Notes: This release has kernel 2.6.27 support, a new package tc-utils, a new program tc-create to create containers easily, and a new program tc-fsck to check and repair the file system in the container.
Release Notes: This is a major release. Package names have changed to tc-*, so that trademark name usage is now more accurate. The *.deb control files now contain proper "Conflicts:" to prevent installation of the same software twice. Previous deb packages are not compatible with the ones generated with this release. A few manual "dpkg --purge" commands need to be given during upgrade.
Release Notes: Kernel 2.6.26 support. The Module.symvers is now properly linked with the *.ko module. This should fix the modprobe error "Invalid module format" and dmesg "truecrypt: no symbol version for struct_module".
