New/Updated Applications

The last days i’ve updated or added new Packages.

Have a lot of fun with it 🙂

new openSUSE Package: bleachbit 0.7.4

We are pleased to announce the new openSUSE Package bleachbit 0.7.4.

What’s new?

The following changes have been made since 0.7.3:

  • Add new privacy feature: click File – Shred Files and Quit. This removes all BleachBit settings as if you never ran BleachBit, so other people can’t tell you have.
  • Use EIC binary prefixes (e.g., 1KiB=1000 bytes) instead of SI binary prefixes (e.g., 1kB=1024B) because EIC is the proper standard for disk space. For more information see see Wikipedia’s Binary Prefix article and Ubuntu’s unit policy.
  • Fix bug removing paths in preferences dialog.
  • Add translation contexts for more accurate translations.
  • Fix deleting files with non-ASCII names.
  • Specific to Linux
    • Add package for Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04).
    • Fix GTK+ depreciation warnings.
    • Fix crash on Ubuntu (only seen on BleachBit as packaged in the Ubuntu repository).
    • Remove translations from RHEL 5.0 and CentOS 5.0 because their ancient gettext version 0.14 does not support translation contexts.

Where can i install the new Version?

You can use the Repository: openSUSE:Factory:Contrib and then just click on „bleachbit“. Enjoy it…

published bleachbit 0.6.4

Now i’m pleased to Announce that bleachbit 0.6.4 is available in Repository openSUSE:Factory:Contrib.


The following changes are included since 0.6.3:

* Add command line interface. Often requested as a new feature, the command line interface lets you invoke BleachBit from scripts, cron, batch files, or the Windows Task Scheduler. For example, BleachBit can automatically vacuum Firefox each night or each time you login.
* At the end of the log, show how many files were deleted, how many special operations were performed, and how many errors occurred, if any. Before only the size was shown.
* When you close BleachBit while it is wiping free disk space, BleachBit will now quickly stop wiping free disk space.
* When manually shredding files (by clicking File – Shred Files), BleachBit now ignores the related preference regarding overwriting files.
* Make BleachBit easier to port to other POSIX systems such as NetBSD. (BleachBit is already available in NetBSD.)
* Fix two spelling typos.
* Fix small bugs.
* Improve unit tests.
* Specific to Linux
o Honour GNOME appearance settings for toolbars (text below icon, icon only, etc).
o Fix Yum error checking for non-English languages.
* Specific to Windows
o Shrink the installer by 6% by using a unique translation compression technique on the GTK+ localizations. If you notice any untranslated strings, please report them.
o Clean Opera 10.0 final.
