BleachBit 1.9.4 beta

BleachBit, the open source system cleaner, announces the public 1.9.4 beta. Please help test today.

These particular areas are a priority for testing:

  • In Google Chrome switch user profiles to a non-default profile. Then create some browser cookies by visiting almost any web site. A practical test is to login to a web site which stores the login information in a cookie. Then exit Google Chrome and clean the cookies using BleachBit. Verify the cookies are deleted: for example, you are now logged out of the web site.

  • Specific to Linux
    • In Edit - Preferences uncheck Hide irrelevant cleaners. Verify that there is not a cleaner Localizations at the base level (see GH#110).
  • Specific to Windows
    • In the Windows Start Menu use the shortcut BleachBit No UAC, and verify it starts BleachBit without showing the the User Access Control (UAC) dialog.

    • Click File - Shred Settings and Quit. Restart BleachBit, and click Edit - Preferences - Drives, and verify the list of drives is reasonable: it should list unique, local, fixed drives.
    • When Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is installed, which creates the inaccessible virtual drive Q:, BleachBit should exit without any popup error message about bleachbit.exe.log.
