The new mechanism for encrypting disks uses the DeviceMapper , while the older used the cryptoloop. There are some advantages of using dm-crypt and cryptloop has security flaws.

More general link:

But before using dm-crypt you should have a look at this:

If you want to encrypt everything, there is a post in this forum, look at the last threads.

IMHO the best solution for disk encryption is dm-crypt with luks
http://luks.endorphin.org/dm-crypt

See there the advantages over other methods
