What is xfce4-screensaver?

xfce4-screensaver is a screen saver and locker that aims to have simple,
sane, secure defaults and be well integrated with the desktop.
xfce4-screensaver is a port of MATE Screensaver, itself a port of GNOME
Screensaver. It has been tightly integrated with the Xfce desktop,
utilizing Xfce libraries and the Xfconf configuration backend.


Release notes for 0.1.2
[Please note that this is a development release.]

This is a follow up release to yesterday's 0.1.1. Two bugs have been
resolved that limited the number of users available to test.

- Resolve hidden libxfce4ui 4.13 requirement (Xfce #14821)
- Avoid hard-coded paths for systems that do not use /usr (Xfce #14822)

Now BSD users and folks with libxfce4ui 4.12.1 can take the screensaver
for a spin!
