Hmm.. It's been added to the database but has been suggested by "Christer Alldén" on the 6th.

Are portable freeware updates better suited through email? :?

The "suggested by" credit is to the original submitter, not the update submitter. :)

Version 6.0a

Version 6.0a is out. I have been using it for about 10 minutes now, and it does not seem to create the TC folder in %appdata% anymore. Can anyone check?

Posted this question in the comment section for TC, but I guess not too many people will see it there. So, here it goes again...

I was wondering, what is actually the difference in just extracting TrueCrypt from the install file vs. running it in traveler mode?

Traveler mode is not stealth as stated on the TC website and also requires previous installation of a system driver. So why not run from the plain extracted files to begin with?

No difference

In terms of the files themselves, there is no difference. It just copies the files over to the traveler mode directory. There might be something in the process that creates a configuration.xml file in the installation directory, but I have not been able to see the difference between the two.
