Atomic Bird LLC
has released Macaroni 2.0, a new version of their Mac OS X maintenance utility. The new version now features the ability to remove user-specified language-specific localized files from applications.
Macaroni 2.0 can automatically maintain Mac OS X-based systems. The developer claims that Macaroni performs improved versions of standard Unix maintenance tasks and maintenance specific to Mac OS X, such as running the “repair permissions” task.
What’s more, Macaroni allows you create your own custom maintenance tasks that run on a regular schedule regardless of when your Mac is turned on — once you’ve set it in Macaroni, you can forget about it.
In addition to removing language localization in order to save disk space, Macaroni 2.0 adds a new scheduling choice for custom maintenance jobs to run after the Mac wakes from sleep. Atomic Bird has also rewritten Macaroni’s core for efficiency.
Macaroni 2.0 costs US$8.99 and can be downloaded for a 35-day trial. The new version is free for all registered users; Macaroni requires Mac OS X v10.1.2 or higher (some features require Jaguar or higher).
