XScreenSaver 5.00b2

XScreenSaver 5.00b2 out now (the "is this a joke?" release).

As usual, see the todo list for the stuff I could still use help with. E.g.:

  • Several people have reported than the savers that use Pixmaps (e.g., Pacman) die with this error:
    CGBitmapContextCreate: unsupported parameter combination: 8 integer bits/component; 8 bits/pixel; 1-component colorspace; kCGImageAlphaNone.
    This has been reported on both PPC and Intel, 32 bit and 16 bit screen depth. Why would it be impossible to make an 8-bit-deep grayscale bitmap context on some systems and not others? Needless to say, it works fine on my iMac in all bit-depths.
  • Someone explain to me what I'm doing wrong with NSMatrix and the radio buttons already.

    My first guess for the 16/32->8 bit issue would be weirdness with a graphics chipset - does it happen on all intel (or all macbook only, or all i-imac only), and is it limited to certain series of ppc macs ? Or maybe they're running some sort of remote screen access and haven't mentioned this ?
