There aren’t any details on what “initial support for Windows 8” means, but one thing is sure: Piriform has started the work to adapt their CCleaner to the new Windows environment since the previous version of the application; after all, Windows 8 is not in “Developer Preview” for nothing.
Besides adjustment to Windows 8, the newest CCleaner, version 3.11.1550, shows a set of improvements that range from cleaning Thunderbird’s cache or Safari’s history to enhancing secure deletion feature on FAT32 file system or the Drive Wiper tool in order to prevent freezing up of the user interface.
Cleaning up Windows Log Files, memory dumps or Office 2007 and 2010 suites is also included on the modifications list of the latest edition of the software.
New in this edition is support for AkelPad (a free text editor).
Paid editions of CCleaner (Business and Home) have also been updated to version 3.11.1550.
