VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX and that is based on TrueCrypt . It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force...
VeraCrypt vs TrueCrypt opinions
TrueCrypt was discontinued in mysterious circumstances. The code was taken forward by VeraCrypt. It is open source and some security vulnerabilities have been fixed since the TrueCrypt days. It's a great app for creating encrypted containers or encrypting whole drives. Backwards compatible with TrueCrypt. Truly excellent software.
Open source fork of TrueCrypt. And most important - it's still developed, unlike TrueCrypt.
An almost identical interface to TrueCrypt but added security that closes a security hole in TrueCrypt.
It carries forward the classic TrueCrypt UI, which means that any TrueCrypt user can use it easily.
Most audited fork of Truecrypt
Because it's an actual fork of TrueCrypt. User interface is the same also, as well as, being backward compatible with TrueCrypt files/containers.
Cryptomator provides transparent, client-side encryption for your cloud. Protect your documents from unauthorized access. Cryptomator is free and open source software, so you can rest assured there are no backdoors.
Cryptomator vs TrueCrypt opinions
Truecrypt is no more. Try the more updated and secure VeraCrypt. Both of those are for making an encrypted container into which files are placed. Cryptomator is different: it encrypts file-by-file (makes an encrypted version of each file). This enables you to sync/backup encrypted versions of your files to the cloud, which the TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt approach doesn't. Cryptomator thus fulfills a different need than does TC/VC.
Its OpenSource and you have the complete control over it
There is more to say about thos software. But I want to mention one thing: Nowadays almost every one has file in the cloud they want to acces any time and any place with any device. With Cryptomator you can do this even with encrypted files. That is very practical if you want to have private documents like for instance your passport accessible everywhere.
Cryptomator is designed for cloud application.
Easy to use and trustworthy.
It uses EncFs method for encryption. And their website is pretty clear about the encryption process
Platform-independent password-based authenticated encryption of files & folders.

is being further developed
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.
LUKS vs TrueCrypt opinions
no multi platform support
Picocrypt is a very small (hence Pico), very simple, yet very secure encryption tool that you can use to protect your files. It's designed to be the go-to tool for encryption, with a focus on security, simplicity, and reliability.
AES Crypt is an advanced file encryption utility that integrates with the Windows shell or runs from the Linux command prompt to provide a simple, yet powerful, tool for encrypting files using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
AES Crypt vs TrueCrypt opinions
AES Crypt is just an encryption program for a single file not for container or partitions like TrueCrypt.
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
