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. You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform.
LUKS is the standard for Linux hard disk encryption. By providing a standard on-disk-format, it does not only facilitate compatibility among distributions, but also provides secure management of multiple user passwords.
DroidFS is an alternative way to use encrypted overlay filesystems on Android that uses its own internal file explorer instead of mounting virtual volumes. It currently only works with gocryptfs but support for CryFS could be added in the future.

gocryptfs uses file-based encryption that is implemented as a mountable FUSE filesystem. Each file in gocryptfs is stored one corresponding encrypted file on the hard disk. The screenshot below shows a mounted gocryptfs filesystem (left) and the encrypted files (right).

Comments about eCryptfs as a Alternative to CryFS
Well-maintained, with long history of usage/checking for security.0
EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. You can find links to source and binary releases below.
The author has agreed that EncFS in its current form is dangerous (to security) for several reasons. Wikipedia has a brief summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EncFS#General_Security_ConcernsThe actual audit, which the author participated in, is here: https://defuse.ca/audits/encfs.htm

This app eases the use of mounting (loading) encrypted partitions (also called Volumes), a disk drive may consist of several of those areas, usually represented by a drive letter.
FinalCrypt uses the most unbreakable encryption: "One Time Pad" Encryption and has a well designed graphical user interface and an equally advanced command line interface for large automations.
