XScreenSaver is the standard screen saver
collection shipped on most Linux and Unix systems
running the X11 Window System. These screen savers
also work on Mac OS (X11 is not required). More
than 200 screen savers are included.
More Xinerama/RANDR fixes were made. Updates were
made to skytentacles, flipflop, stairs, polyhedra,
blitspin, and stonerview. The layout of the
preferences dialogs was improved. A "Reset to
Defaults" button was added on X11. Relevant
Wikipedia links were added to many of the screen
Xinerama/RANDR fixes: it should now work to add/remove monitors or resize screens at any time. A new 'skytentacles' hack. Updates to 'gleidescope' and 'bsod'. Most image-loading hacks now re-pick images after a few minutes.
New hacks include "cubicgrid", "hypnowheel", and
"lcdscrub". Updates were made to "m6502", "gears",
"cubestorm", and "noof". An attempt was made to
work around the latest Xinerama bugs. A Mac OS
10.5 perl bug that caused the text-displaying
hacks to fail on some systems was worked around.
Font-related System Preferences crashes in Mac OS
savers were hopefully fixed. The recent PAM
changes broke the "Caps Lock" warning in the
password dialog, the failed login warnings, and
syslogging, so all of that was fixed.
A possible crash in the unlock dialog caused by recent PAM changes was fixed. New 'moebiusgears', 'abstractile', and 'lockward' hacks were added. 'gears' was rewritten to use better (involute) gear models and to be more random. Minor updates were made to 'cwaves', 'voronoi', 'deco', 'glcells', 'rd-bomb', 'fireworkx', and 'webcollage'. 'pong' can now display the current time as the score. 'xmatrix -mode pipe' works better. Minor tweaks were made for compilation on Mac OS 10.5.0.
