The LUKS2 format brings several advantages over the original LUKS format. Some of the most important are (1) data integrity protection and (2) memory-hard functions for key derivation.

GRUB supports the original LUKS format, allowing the setup of full-disk encryption (FDE) schemes where GRUB decrypts an encrypted /boot partition.
Adding support for LUKS2 on GRUB would improve the security on these FDE schemes, specially due to the two new LUKS2 advantages mentioned above.

I found several references online (Arch Wiki, Stackoverflow, etc.) to the lack of LUKS2 support on GRUB. I decided to open this feature request since I could find no mention of LUKS2 on both the bug tracker and the mailing lists.
