Alco Blom has released a new version of his useful password storage program Web Confidential, reviewed in "Web Confidential: Securing Information of All Sorts" in TidBITS 441. Version 1.0.2 addresses some of our minor concerns, including support for the arrow keys in the Note field and some confusing category labels. It also groups the categories for easier visual parsing, fixes a crash related to the Platinum appearance being turned off, and fixes a bug that sometimes caused changes to be lost on save.
