BleachBit 0.6.5 released - Open source system cleaner

Free space and maintain privacy
BleachBit 0.6.5 vacuums Google Chrome, deletes Google Chrome 3's history, adds a portable application for Windows, fixes bugs, and updates 18 translations.

BleachBit Free space and maintain privacy


The following changes have been made since 0.6.4:

* Vacuum Google Chrome. Like Firefox, Google Chrome stores much of its data in SQLite databases which become fragmented resulting in wasted disk space and potentially a loss in performance. I save 2-5MB in the safe browsing bloom and 200KB in the other files. How much disk space you recover? Reply in the comments.
* Delete the browsing history in Google Chrome version 3.
* Fix bug deleting some Microsoft Windows registry entries.
* Fix bug that BleachBit would stop prematurely after encountering an error deleting a file.
* Improve unit tests to potentially catch more bugs before a release.
* Specific to Linux
o Introduce the bonus cleaners package which cleans Adanaxis, Gnome Art Manager, Notify OSD, PDFedit, Phatch, PlayOnLinux, system logs, Virt-manager, and X-Moto.

o Clean Emesene cache (contacts' avatars and custom emoticions) thanks to Danilo Piazzalunga .
o Add installation package for Mandriva 2009.1.
* Specific to Windows
o Add a portable application for Windows. Without installation, run BleachBit from a USB disk or your desktop. Read the documentation for "installation" and start-up instructions. Note: at this time, the configuration is not portable: it's stored normally in your local user profile.
o Shrink the size of the full installer by about 600KB.
