Maintenance release

Xslimmer 1.2.1 is a maintenance release that solves a bug detected after launch of version 1.2.0. The bug could cause Xslimmer to remove all localizations of some apps in certain circumstances, rendering those applications unusable. This was the case, for example, for users whose preferred language was British English and decided to keep one language.

Our apologies for not having detected this behaviour even after having conducted a closed beta programme.

Hope you can now enjoy Xslimmer 1.2 to its fullest.

UK English Bug Detected

Unfortunately, there has been a bug detected in the case of selecting UK English as the only language to keep. We are working hard to nail it down and release a fix for it as soon as possible.

Xslimmer 1.2 is Out!

That's right. The anticipated release of Xslimmer that allows language stripping from applications is here. In this release, we include a series of benefits:

* Language stripping. Xslimmer 1.2 allows you to easily select how many languages you want to preserve and will remove the rest, thus greatly increasing the amount of disk space you'll free.
* Send apps to exclusion list. A new menu option allows you to easily add applications to your personal list of excluded ones, directly from the Xslimmer window. No more search for the app to exclude!
* Quicksilver integration. Allows Xslimmer to become a target for Quicksilver's "Open with..." feature.
* Localizations. Xslimmer is now available in English, Spanish, French and Italian!
* UI improvements. A variety of minor UI improvements have been added that contribute to (we hope) a sound, consistent and polished user experience.

Hope you enjoy using Xslimmer 1.2.

Xslimmer Language Stripping Ready for Beta

Time for a new beta! This one will be smaller than the original one, but we want to find out if there could be any issues, that we did not forsee or find out, with the new language stripping system that we have implemented onto Xslimmer 1.2.

This means that we have finished Xslimmer 1.2 development, and we are ready to let our original beta testers check it out. If you are interested in testing it out too, you are more than welcome to write to us. We are limiting total new submissions to 10.
