Permanent Eraser 2.7.3 is now available from this website and the Mac App Store (MAS). The MAS version's release was delayed for a few days as Apple's review process was not available for a week during the holidays. The following are the changes in this version:
- Fixed default Preferences for new users.
- Minor UI fixes.
- Updated German localization.
- Updated Help files.
Since version 2.7.2 was released last November, Permanent Eraser was also updated so it could be approved for the Mac App Store. The previous version in MAS was 2.5.3, which encountered a severe issue when working with macOS Sierra and later. This issue had been fixed years earlier in version 2.6.0, but since the MAS version of Permanent Eraser had not been updated since then, that version was essentially broken and useless on newer versions of macOS.
While working on the MAS update for Permanent Eraser, I encountered a couple of additional areas which needed to be updated. Since the major planned feature for version 2.8.0 will not be accepted for the Mac App Store, 2.7.3 was created to get in these minor updates for both the website and MAS versions. Permanent Eraser 2.8.0 is planned for release later in 2018.
