If you like the Crashfaster track, he's having his album release at DNA Lounge this Thursday.

XScreenSaver 5.23 out now, including for iOS.
I think that at this point, all of the OSX savers should be just as fast as their X11 equivalents. XCopyArea has finally been beaten in to submission, mostly thanks to Dave Odell!
One new hack, Geodesic. Watch how it inflates. It's subtle.
Also, I added a real installer on OSX. Let me know how that works out for you.
And the usual round of minor bug fixes.
