all we can say is that the devs no longer felt they were able to continue developing the program.

since truecrypt remains entirely functional on: win XP/7/8/10 / linux / OSX / certain mobile platforms, i have no issue with continueing to use it.
You and NielDK are probably right that it is still an intersting program to have instead of no security.

But if my freedom depended on it I would find it worrisome to concluded that ever since the statement below:

1) development has stopped
2) the community of users has reviewed the code and concluded that there are no outstanding security issues with truecrypt

Means those suspected issues have been fixed or not found at all?

"WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues

This page exists only to help migrate existing data encrypted by TrueCrypt.

The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP. Windows 8/7/Vista and later offer integrated support for encrypted disks and virtual disk images. Such integrated support is also available on other platforms (click here for more information). You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform."
