People are still trying to figure out what the hell happened with TrueCrypt suddenly announcing that development had stopped and that the code was not secure. However, as people sort that out, the same folks who were leading the charge on the TrueCrypt audit have announced that they're looking into the possibility of picking up the TrueCrypt project and running with it themselves. The idea would be to complete the security audit, but then start managing a fork of the project themselves. They haven't fully committed to this, but it sounds like that's what they'd like to do. Yet another example of how open source projects are quite handy.
