Very aesthetically appealing. Well executed. My one criticism is that the transitions from one color combination to the next are not seamless enough; there's too long of a lag between each. Other than that, two thumbs up!

Yay, it's back! Best screensaver ever. Thanks so much to Stéphane Sudre for keeping this incredibly old screensaver, and my own screensaver nostalgial, alive and kicking! If you haven't tried it, switch to greyscale then run it... it's very nice.

The color rotation was indeed not very fluid in the old version. In the 1.3 version, the rendering is now done using OpenGL so you get ~60fps on almost all supported configurations including the iMac 5K.
