Maybe it is so good, that it havent needed any updates? ;)

Glad to see the project is still alive though.

 

Eraser is very good software for secure erasing of data.

I tried it and it messed up my right click context menu, putting extra spaces and lines in (thankfully fixed just by uninstalling) so sticking with old version for now.
