*** Update: these issues are no longer relevant as of iScreensaver 4.4 – Please update if you haven’t already ***
Today Apple released Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion” as well as Safari updates : Safari 5.0.6 for Mac OS X 10.5, and Safari 5.1 for Mac OS X 10.6.
These updates cause some issues with screensavers built with iScreensaver Designer 4.
- Issue: Screensaver may be hard to exit when using the Heads Up Display (“HUD”) in addition to the security setting "Require Password after sleep or screen saver begins. Solution: disable the screensaver’s HUD option and/or disable “Require Password”. If you encounter difficulty quitting the screensaver, try hitting the ESC key or Apple-Q.
Safari 5.06 and 5.1 Issues under Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6:
- Flash (SWF) items may not render at all.
- Movie items may show up in a strange location onscreen.
Solution: we have identified the cause of both these issues and will have a fix available next week. In the mean time, if you can’t revert back to an older version of Safari, we suggest you use a different screensaver for a few days.
Version 4.3.8, to be released next week, will fix these issues, and we are happy to report that it works well under Mac OS X 10.7.
If you encounter any issues that are not on this list, please post your question to the forums.
