A new version of obfuscatr email obfuscation widget introduces support for + addresses (e.g. john+newsletters@company.com). Somewhat a forced update by obfuscatr users, it is still a minor update and does not add much to the latest release of 1.1.0 introduced by Flashbit precisely a year ago.

+ addresses can be used with a Google Mail account making Google pretty much responsible for its increased use. Many companies use + addresses for their support ticketing system given the format support+230129043@company.com. As this format makes email filtering very easy to handle it's a must for any email-related system.

obfuscatr 1.2.0 is a Mac OS X Dashboard widget available as a free download. Version 1.1.0 was featured on MacWorld Italy's complimentary CD.
