XScreenSaver overview

XScreenSaver is a collection of several hundred screen savers. This is a Mac port of the standard screen saver collection shipped on most Linux and Unix systems.

What’s new in version 6.08.1

  • Worked around a macOS 14.0 bug where savers would continue running invisibly in the background after un-blanking.
  • Upgraded Sparkle (the “Check for Updates” library) for macOS 14.0 compatibility.

VERY jerky on M1 processors. Please update for modern Macs.

I probably have another idea of what is pretty or not. Here, in my opinion, there is nothing interesting.

New version now works on Mojave! Fantastic. The only thing I'd love to see is the savers not switching macOS from the integrated to the discrete GPU. (Don't know if that's possible though.)

It's so great to have these screen savers. They even work on Mojave, but sadly only in their default settings. As soon as you try to leave the respective screen saver settings in System Preferences, a crash occurs. Definitely needs a fix.
