AdwCleaner 8.0
#1
Information 
Quote:Hello,
 
We are pleased to share the 8th major release of AdwCleaner!
 
This version has been slowly worked on for a year now, and very actively for a few weeks and provides major improvements:
  • We have upgraded our toolchain to a more modern suite in order to benefit from security improvements, various new compiler optimizations and to use new C++ features to get a cleaner and more efficient code. Although this change is mostly invisible, it has been a critical change to support our future work and to greatly reduce the technical debt.
  • We moved to Qt 5.13 branch which is the latest version to date, and which provides major improvements for native integrations
  • We introduced again a working Chrome scan and remediation module that allows AdwCleaner to scan and clean Chrome in a fully comprehensive manner. Related, we temporarily removed the support for Firefox scanning and cleaning and we will introduce a fully new module to provide a much better support in the  version 8.0.1 early December.
  • We have been fixing numerous bugs in the remediation and quarantine logic. This part is now much more robust that it was before.
  • Although we have not officially supported Windows Vista or Windows XP for a few years now, we got reports of successful usage by various users on both  Windows versions. We know for sure that AdwCleaner 8 and onward will no longer work on these platforms. A support page will be posted with a link to AdwCleaner 7.4.2 which is the last release to run on those versions.
There is no changes to the UI or no new features as to speak. Most of the significant changes are happening under the hood, but that doesn't make them less critical and major to provide performances and stability again as we are aware it has been lagging for the past months.
 
We will release the 8.0.1 before the end of the year as we are now finally back on the "one release every 3 to 4 weeks schedule" to include your feedbacks more quickly (more on that shortly) and to overall improve AdwCleaner's quality. This next "dot-version" will include detection improvements (especially for Browsers) and a major review of the translations.

The changelog is as below:
Quote:## v8 [26/11/2019]
