Package: cryptsetup
Version: 2:2.0.6-1
Severity: wishlist

LUKS2 format was introduced in 2:2.0.0~rc0-1 which went into debian on
03 Oct 2017. There was some discussion on the debian-boot list during
the libcryptsetup transition about the format


including a comment,

  "feel free to poke us again for partman-crypto when the new format
  looks mature enough so that we see about adding support for it."

Is it ready to become the default for new installs yet?

I started thinking about this when I saw that Fedora is planning on
moving to it by default
