What's new in version 2.2

New features:
  • ArtSaver can handle multiple monitors (screens), i.e., it will store different preferences for each screen; in particular, this will allow you to display different image lists on different screens. (For this to work, you must uncheck "Main screen only" in System Preferences / Screen Savers!) There is a deliberate offset between the two (or more) screens, in order to prevent disk fighting in the case all screen savers have the same duration per image. (In that case ArtSaver would have to load the new images at the same time for all screens.) Keyboard input (pause, forward, backward, show in Finder) goes to all screens simultaneously.
  • You can switch cross-dissolve off, and you can change the duration of a cross-dissolve
  • ArtSaver can now automatically re-scan the directory / photo album after a user-specified time
  • The "skip patterns" are now regular expressions (not file patterns any more!); this gives you more flexibility
  • The "skip patterns" (err regexp's) can handle unicode now (i.e., characters from all languages)
  • You can switch off the displaying of the image file name's extension (e.g., the ".jpg" suffix)
  • General improvements of the user interface of the configuration sheet
  • When displaying images in sequential order ("Randomize images" is off), you can now go back (cursor left) indefinitely
Bug fixes / changes:
  • Matching of the skip patterns was buggy
  • When presenting images sequentially, ArtSaver "forgot" where it was stopped last time, so it always started with index 0 (= first image in the list) each run; now, it continues with the image it displayed during the last run
  • Should work under 10.5 again (it does work on my machine with 10.5.8 / PPC G4)
  • Improved the part of the UI controlling the options for the displaying of the file names
