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.

Well, my *logic* is certainly different to yours.

Unless the Veracrypt team (person?) finds a security flaw in Truecrypt that was missed by the extensive audit, and then produces a fix, I cannot see how it could possibly come up with a product that is more secure. Security flaws are seldom fixed by accident in the course of making other tweaks and adding new features. Exactly the reverse is in fact the case.
