With some spare time on my hands, I’ve turned my attention to updating my
Mac screen saver Ephemeral. This release is a huge update from the old version.
The main changes are:
Greatly improved appearance: the images now fade out with a gentle blur effect.
Note that if your GPU doesn’t allow Ephemeral to access the graphics
system, it falls back to simpler drawing with the CPU.
- Ephemeral now draws on all screens, instead of just the primary screen. This can be changed in the screen saver options.
- Fully rewritten rendering engine for greater efficiency.
- Now requires Mac 10.8 or later. If you’re running 10.6 or 10.7 then the old 1.1.2 release is still available.
As this version of Ephemeral is a major rewrite, any feedback about how it
performs for you would be great.
I’ve got more ideas for improvements, so stay tuned!
