NOTE: Support of EFI system encryption (limitations: no hidden os, no boot custom message)

NOTE 2: For Windows, 1.18a is identical to 1.18. Both 1.18 & 1.18a Windows installers have been updated with the Microsoft signed driver files. The code remains the same. The Windows 10 Anniversary Edition released by Microsoft introduced constraints that made VeraCrypt impossible to run for several users and this last minute change was necessary.

NOTE 3: Fix TrueCrypt vulnerability that enables detection of presence of hidden volumes. If you rely on plausible deniability of the hidden volume feature, then you need to upgrade to 1.18 and recreate outer/hidden volumes due to the way random data was created for the second header.
