BleachBit 1.6 an alternative to CCleaner released for Linux

BleachBit 1.6 which is the latest release, helps deletes unnecessary files to free valuable disk space, maintain privacy, and “remove junk. Rid your system of old clutter including cache, Internet history, temporary files, cookies, and broken shortcuts. BleachBit 1.6 fixes important bug for Google Chrome, Windows, and KDE, and it better cleans Google Chrome and Firefox. Beyond simply erasing junk files, BleachBit wipes free disk space (to hide previously deleted files for privacy and to dramatically improve compression of disk images), vacuums Firefox databases (to improve performance without >deleting data), and securely shreds arbitrary files.
