Doodle's ScreenSaver for OS/2 and eComStation v2.0 released

September 16, 2008 by Mark Dodel

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

Doodle's ScreenSaver for OS/2 and eComStation v2.0 has been released. This is an Open Source Screen Saver for OS/2 and eCS. It's integrated into the WPS, replaces the old Lockup Desktop facility, and can cooperate with third party applications.

Currently in:

ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/incoming/dssaver_v20.exe

Source:

ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/incoming/dssaver_v20_srcbin.zip

Eventually will move to:

ftp://netlabs.org/pub/dssaver

Changes:
* v2.0 : 2008.08.18.
- The screen saver settings page now reports 180 Dialog Units as its minimal height, so most of it should be visible even on newly installed systems.
- The screen saver modules are now running in a separate process when they are started for real saving (but not when they are running for preview mode). This should help to solve those kinds of memory and resource leaks on which we have no control (e.g. leaks in DIVE subsystem).

Please note that if you want to use the Cairo saver modules, they require Cairo v1.2.4 Runtime or newer to be installed first. It can be installed from:

ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/Cairo
