Doodle Screen Saver 1.7.5

April 08, 2007 by Mark Dodel

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Mark Dodel

This is a new Screen Saver for OS/2 and eCS. It's integrated into WPS, replaces the old Lockup Desktop facility, and can cooperate with third party applications.

Changelog.txt:
* v1.7.5 : 2007.03.08.
- Modified DPMS handling, so that it can be told *NOT* to use SNAP,but use direct VGA register access. This might be a bit risky, and only supports ON and OFF modes, but this is the only working method when SNAP has problems with the monitor. A REXX tool has been included to turn on/off this feature.
- Added new module: SlideShow (Thanks to Warp5!)
- Updated ShowInage and SlideShow modules to v1.7.1.
They now use the GBM library to decode images, not the MMPM IOProcs.
- Modified Cairo modules so they now link to Cairo v1.2.4
This should resolve FontConfig problems.
- Compiler upgraded to OpenWatcom v1.6.

It can be downloaded from hobbes.
