BleachBit 0.3.2 released

Version 0.3.2 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, logs, and temporary files.


The following changes are included since 0.3.1

  • Clean apt cache by running apt autoclean (for Ubuntu and Debian).
  • Clean yum cache by running yum clean all (for CentOS, Fedora, and Red Hat).
  • Delete rotated system logs in /var/logs/.
  • Delete Skype's chat logs.
  • Clean Transmission BitTorrent client (by juancarlospaco).
  • Clean Exaile music player (based on patch by juancarlospaco).
  • Clean more localizations
  • Fixed bug: temporary files were cleaned when trash was selected.
  • Fixed bug: if BleachBit were started for the first time running in sudo mode, it created configuration files the regular user could not read, preventing BleachBit startup. If you are affected, then run this command in a terminal:
    sudo chown -R `whoami` ~/.config/bleachbit/
  • Delete folders in trash (instead of leaving empty folders).
  • Fix unusual situation where a selected language could disappear from the preferences.
  • Fix language auto-detection that could cause BleachBit to fail to start.
  • Shrink preferences dialog for small screens like Asus Eee PC.
  • Add first French translation from Edouard Marquez.
  • Add first Arabic translation from MaXeR.
  • Add first Turkish translation from alperyilmaz.
