Cryptsetup 1.7.1 Release Notes
==============================

Changes since version 1.7.0

* Code now uses kernel crypto API backend according to new
  changes introduced in mainline kernel

  While mainline kernel should contain backward compatible
  changes, some stable series kernels do not contain fully
  backported compatibility patches.
  Without these patches  most of cryptsetup operations
  (like unlocking device) fail.

  This change in cryptsetup ensures that all operations using
  kernel crypto API works even on these kernels.

* The cryptsetup-reencrypt utility now properly detects removal
  of underlying link to block device and does not remove
  ongoing re-encryption log.
  This allows proper recovery (resume) of reencrypt operation later.

  NOTE: Never use /dev/disk/by-uuid/ path for reencryption utility,
  this link disappears once the device metadata is temporarily
  removed from device.

* Cryptsetup now allows special "-" (standard input) keyfile handling
  even for TCRYPT (TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt compatible) devices.

* Cryptsetup now fails if there are more keyfiles specified
  for non-TCRYPT device.

* The luksKillSlot command now does not suppress provided password
  in batch mode (if password is wrong slot is not destroyed).
  Note that not providing password in batch mode means that keyslot
  is destroyed unconditionally.
