The following changes have been made since 0.7.4:
* Add whitelisting feature, so certain files and folders are not modified. Setup your whitelist in the preferences dialog. The whitelist feature supports all the standard operations including delete, shred, truncate, and vacuum, but it doesn't affect files deleted by third-party software (yum and apt). Files that are whitelisted are clearly marked in the BleachBit log.
* Specific to Linux
o Delete recent documents in GNOME 2.28 -- 2.30 (e.g., Ubuntu Karmic Kaola, Lucid Lynx, Fedora 13).
o Use GTK+ Recent Manager to purge recent documents list.
o Support Thunderbird 3 as found on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04.
o Introduce .rpm package for Fedora 13 (Goddard).
* Specific to Windows
o Avoid triggering a false positive in BitDefender Antivirus 2010.
