In this open series, you can contribute shows that are on the topic of Privacy and Security
Previously we looked at the issues around TrueCrypt and Heartbleed, and noted that a fundamental problem was that technologies we rely on to be safe are often developed and maintained by volunteers or people on a shoestring budget. There is now more news worth looking at in this respect, so it is time for an update.

Thanks for this update
I was not aware of the problems suffered by Werner Koch regarding the funding of GnuPG. As a frequent user of this software this situation seems lamentable. His donation page is at https://gnupg.org/donate/index.html

TrueCrypt vs. GPG
Thanks for this wonderful series. I've listened to them all, and, notably, installed K9-Mail and the encryption extension for Gmail after listening to that episode.
I missed listening to this episode why one might consider using TrueCrypt when GPG is under active development. What features does TC have that GPG lacks?

Bear in mind that any answer is provisional and for the present time, but the fact that TrueCrypt has been audited and passed the audit is a big advantage in my book.

Tag should be GnuPG not GnuPGP.
