Piriform has updated its Mac freeware cleaning tool. CCleaner for Mac 1.04.148 adds support for managing login items and an option for removing unneeded languages from applications. It also adds Gatekeeper support for the forthcoming Mountain Lion OS X 10.8 release.
CCleaner for Mac is based on the popular PC version, offering Mac users a collection of free, conveniently placed tools for recovering hard drive space with just a few clicks.
CCleaner for Mac 1.04.148’s headline new feature is the Login Items Manager, which is accessible from the Tools menu (click the Startup button). It works in an identical way to the options found on the Login Items tab on the Users & Groups Preferences pane – users can disable or delete unwanted items to free up resources and speed up login times.
Also added to version 1.04 is an option marked “Unneeded Languages” in the System section of the main Cleaner tool. This searches for redundant languages used by applications that can unnecessarily waste drive space.
The update adds compatibility for the forthcoming OS X 10.8 release (due later this month) by adding Gatekeeper support, ensuring the program will run correctly and without any security warnings in Mountain Lion.
The update is rounded off by a number of minor fixes and improvements, including better updating of the cookie list after cleaning, and improved support for cleaning individual rules. Empty results are now hidden from detailed Analysis results too.
CCleaner for Mac 1.04.148 is a freeware download for Macs running OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or later.
