BleachBit 0.3.1 released

Version 0.3.1 is a minor release of BleachBit, the file and privacy cleaner for Linux. BleachBit aims to be an easy, advanced, and smart way to clean junk including broken menu entries, cache, cookies, Internet history, localizations, and temporary files.


  • Clean the cache and temporary files of Acrobat Reader, GIMP, Google Earth, Second Life Viewer, and winetricks (part of patch from JuanCarlosPaco).
  • Clean Firefox version 3's URL history without deleting the entire places.sqlite file (which also contains bookmarks).
  • Clean more localizations.
  • Vacuum the Firefox databases (which becomes fragmented): remove unused space and improve performance without deleting data.
  • Complete and correct the Spanish translation (JuanCarlosPaco).
  • Fixed bug that blocked cleaning of some localizations on Ubuntu 8.04 when the ubuntu-docs package was installed. (Ubuntu 8.10 was not affected.)
  • Fixed bug that prevented starting BleachBit when the language was not set (typically through the LANG environment variable).
  • Fixed bug that prevented cleaning of the clipboard.
  • Make it easier to run BleachBit with translation without installation.
