CCleaner, the free system maintenance utility from Piriform, has received an update this week, adding support for the next Mac OS release from Apple, particularly in the security department - Gatekeeper.
Delivering new features as well as bug fixes, the useful CCleaner for Mac OS X now boasts Login Item management, removal of un-needed languages from applications, and Gatekeeper support for Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).
Gatekeeper is a security module in Mountain Lion’s preferences where customers can choose how to download and install applications, from what sources, using what restrictions, etc.
“Gatekeeper is a new feature in OS X Mountain Lion that helps protect users from downloading and installing malicious software,” Apple explains on its Developer site.
“Signing your applications, plug-ins, and installer packages with a Developer ID certificate lets Gatekeeper verify that they are not known malware and have not been tampered with.”
Gatekeeper helps users protect their computer by giving them control over which apps they install.
According to Apple, “You can download and install apps from anywhere on the web, just as you always could. You can choose to download and install apps from the Mac App Store — the safest place to find apps for your Mac. Or use the Gatekeeper default option, which allows you to install apps from the Mac App Store and apps from identified developers.”
CCleaner now integrates with this feature, allowing users to continue their maintenance as they did before in OS X Snow Leopard and OS X Lion. Other changes in the new CCleaner 1.04.148 include: ·
Fixed bug that could cause results to be reported incorrectly. ·
Improved updating of cookie list after cleaning. ·
