BleachBit 0.2.1 released

BleachBit 0.2.1 is released. BleachBit is a file cleaner to free valuable disk space and to maintain privacy.

Highlights of changes

  • Clean recent documents history (through a new system that performs operations more sophisticated than simply deleting a file)
  • Introduce application icon
  • Improve internationalization
  • Add first localization: Spanish
  • Fix conflict in packaging regarding 32-bit and 64-bit hosts
  • Show version in about dialog (suggested by obscur156)
  • Find RPM build directory a better way
  • Improve abbreviation of bytes (for example, show 123,457 bytes as 120.6KB)
  • Fix some small bugs

Translators are welcome to improve translations!


Notice the last file is prefixed with an asterisk. This indicates a special operation. In this case, the Common.xcu file is edited to remove the recent documents history, but the file is not deleted because it contains other information. (Tip: There are other ways to delete the recent documents history.)

Also notice the new application icon in the top-right-hand corner.

BleachBit's first translation is to Spanish! It's a little rough, but translators are welcome! (The spelling of "archivo" is already fixed for the next version.)


Installation packages are available for 16 Linux distributions-versions. Download BleachBit now.
