Downvoted because essentially you're saying a fixed known frozen in time version is better than something that is under active development - a point which is extremely debatable since its public knowledge who the Veracrypt developers are vs the unknowns who coded the original.

Your whole argument rests on balancing 2 imponderables - dormant but well audited legacy code vs maintained but changing code, which may or may not be introducing new bugs with new functionality.

Given this last year has seen Heartbleed AND shellshock in far more frequently used codebases - my personal preference is to go with the actively maintained stuff, but YMMV.
