CleanMyMac 3.1

MacPaw has released CleanMyMac 3.1 with full support for OS X 10.11 El Capitan, as well as El Capitan’s SIP (System Integrity Protection) security feature. The all-purpose cleaning and maintenance app (reviewed recently by Joe Kissell; see “Save Space and Uninstall Apps with CleanMyMac 3,” 28 August 2015) also now sends album artwork cache cleanup to iTunes Junk and Adobe Premiere Pro media cache cleanup to System Junk, improves notification behavior for all permanent Health issues, updates the CleanMyMac Safety Database to version 2.1.0, fixes a bug that displayed a false positive battery health status, ensures that login items are correctly removed as part of the uninstaller, and fixes numerous layout issues in El Capitan.
