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.

Release Notes: A new hack: photopile. Updates to sonar, jigsaw, maze, m6502, hypnowheel, timetunnel, munch, and webcollage. EXIF rotation support. RANDR fixes. Some old, boring screen savers have been retired.
Release Notes: 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 saver descriptions.
Release Notes: 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.
Release Notes: 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.
Release Notes: 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.
