As you might have seen before, there were some issues with CryFS for which I had to switch Vault to use EncFS by default for Plasma 5.12 since it is a long-term support release.

Now that 5.12 is behind us, I’ve had the time to revamp the CryFS backend to use the latest features that Sebastian implemented in cryfs 0.9.9.

Plasma Vault now communicates the error messages reported by cryfs clearly and is able to upgrade the cryfs filesystem when you upgrade to a new cryfs version.

The new version of Plasma Vault is ready for testing (it is in master, Plasma 5.13 beta will be released in a few weeks).

You can support my work on , or you can get my book Functional Programming in C++ at if you're into that sort of thing.
