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

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
