Ubuntu Tweak will continue development, there was so much feed back that the developer decided to continue it.
See Here for's post on it and Here for the developers blog post.

Computer Janitor was the default program and was removed in 12.04 but can still be found in the Software Center and installed if for some reason Ubuntu Tweak stops development again in the future.

UPDATE: On the developers blog page there is a link to donate to project development via Paypal. I too think that this is one of the must have apps for the Untiy DE so I think I will be sending some money myself to help insure that the project will be able to continue.

I find Bleachbit to be the most comprehensive system cleaner.

Thank you very much :) – Levan Oct 26 '12 at 0:16
Bleachbit is very thorough. You might want to make sure before you hit delete. It is a very good app. – Sudhir Khanger Nov 18 '12 at 23:22

In addition to the tools that others have mentioned, a great cleaning tool is Mundus Home Folder Cleaner (the name says it all)
