BleachBit 1.3 beta

BleachBit, the open source system cleaner, announces the public 1.3 beta which includes enhancements, bug fixes, and translation updates. Please help test today.

These particular areas are a priority for testing:

  • Google Chrome should clean thoroughly and without errors.
  • Firefox should clean thoroughly (see LP#1326626) and without errors.
  • Adobe Reader
  • GIMP 2.8 temporary files
  • Liferea
  • Specific to Linux
    • Test on CentOS 7
    • Firefox cache should be cleaned by the Firefox - Cache option and not System - Cache (LP#1295826)).
    • Easytag history
    • Links2 (web browser) history
    • VLC network streams history (see GH#15)
  • Specific to Windows
    • Winapp2.ini entries with %ProgramFiles% expand properly on 64-bit systems, so compared to BleachBit 1.2, you may see more Winapp2 cleaners detected. Also, compared to version 1.2, more files should be cleaned.
    • Wildcards expand properly in Detect=, so you may see new Winapp2 cleaners compared to BleachBit 1.2.

Since BleachBit 1.0, odd-numbered minor versions are beta releases, so BleachBit 1.3 is the beta release for 1.4 stable.

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



September 8, 2014: BleachBit 1.4 has been released.
