It indicates the presence of an ACL (file access control list), as
documented in "info coreutils ls":
Following the file mode bits is a single character that specifies
whether an alternate access method such as an access control list
applies to the file. When the character following the file mode
bits is a space, there is no alternate access method. When it is a
printing character, then there is such a method.
GNU `ls' uses a `.' character to indicate a file with a security
context, but no other alternate access method.
A file with any other combination of alternate access methods is
marked with a `+' character.
See "man getfacl" and "man 5 acl" for more information on ACLs.
