DiskCryptor 1.2 Beta 1 with UEFI support

Here is the first new build of DiskCryptor since 2014 its a fork of the project and starting with version 1.2
It comes with a UEFI compatible boot-loader and various fixes to make it work with EFI installations on GPT disks.

The boot loader is not signed for secure boot, so for now, to use it, disabling secure boot is required.
The tool is able to use a signed shim Bootloader from Red Hat and install it, however for now the required files are not included in the installation package, as its a more fiddly installation and given the release is a beta it sounded reasonable to try to minimize potential issues.

The Disk Cryptor driver needed to be slightly updated, and since the ReactOS foundation no longer offer driver signing service, I head to use a leaked code signing certificate i found laying around the Internets.
This means some anti malware applications flag it as potential dangerous: ... /detection

Here is the change-log with all the highlights:
