Exciting times for Mac users who were waiting to take advantage of the functionality CCleaner has to offer. The team at Piriform, privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows and Mac, announced that the final version of CCleaner for Mac will be released soon (if all things go according to plan).

Piriform released the first public Beta version of CCleaner for Mac at the start of June and since then it has been continually working on the application. There was a second Beta, a third one, and all the way up to a sixth Beta. CCleaner for Mac Beta 6 (available for download here) was released to the public this Friday, the 2nd of December. It came with the following changes:
  • Added Cookie management.
  • Added Repair Permissions.
  • Added Wipe Freespace.
  • Added Crash Reporting.
  • Added cleaning of Safari binary cookies in Mac OS 10.7.
  • Uninstall now removes shortcuts from the Dock.
  • Improved internet cache cleaning for Safari.
  • Added Restore Default State option to cleaning rules.
  • Improved detection of application versions.
  • Several minor stability fixes.

The interesting thing is not that Piriform released CCleaner for Mac Beta 6 to the public. The interesting thing is what Piriform said when it rolled out the sixth Beta. Piriform said that this should be the last Beta before the release of the final version. If all goes to plan, the final version of CCleaner for Mac will be released soon and everyone will be able to enjoy the functionality it has to offer.

Betas tend to be fidgety and tend to cause problems – that is why only experienced users who know what they’re getting into should get them. As long as CCleaner for Mac carries the Beta tag, regular users will most likely stay away from it. But once it sheds the Beta tag, they will no longer do that.

As a longtime user of CCleaner for Windows, I wholeheartedly recommend the aplication. It is a free, easy to use, and properly good application that will help you remove all the junk files that are needlessly taking up space on your computer.
