BleachBit 1.0 beta 2

BleachBit, the open source system cleaner, announces the public 1.0 beta which includes enhancements, bug fixes, and translation updates. Please help test.

These particular areas are a priority for testing:

  • Clean Adobe Flash
  • Clean Octave
  • Clean Warzone 2100
  • Clean Google Chrome with the "overwrite contents" option enabled. Verify there are no errors, and the bookmark icons are preserved.
  • Clean VLC with the "overwrite contents" option enabled.
  • Run a command line like this to delete a specific file or folder:bleachbit --shred /some/filename
  • Specific to Linux
    • Clean SQLite3
  • Specific to Windows
    • Verify the installer is digitally signed
    • In the portable edition, verify bleachbit.exe is digitally signed.
    • Clean VLC recently played
    • Install BleachBit, open Windows Explorer, right click on a file or folder, and choose Shred with BleachBit. (This doesn't work with BleachBit Portable.)
    • Delete winapp2.ini from the settings folder, set BleachBit to download it, and restart BleachBit. BleachBit should load winapp2.ini without restarting BleachBit.
    • Clean Google Chrome cache
    • Clean the system logs

To look for regressions follow the standard tests on the Testing page.
