It is recommended to update Espionage prior to upgrading to Lion. If you were not able to do this, no sweat, simply download a fresh copy from our website and replace your copy of Espionage with it.
Full Extended Attributes support
Extended attributes are pieces of data that can be attached to files and folders (metadata in a sense). Some applications on OS X use them for various purposes, like indicating that a folder should be displayed as a bundle in the Finder (iPhoto does this). Espionage now fully supports them on the encrypted folders themselves (extended attributes on files and folders *within* the encrypted folder have always been supported).
