iScreensaver, macOS Big Sur 11.5 and Montery 12.0 Compatibility Issues

We have identified some issues that arise which can prevent screensavers and the editor software (Designer) from working if a user upgrades to macOS Big Sur 11.5 or the beta version of Monterey (12.0).

We have found the problem and are working on a new version of iScreensaver Designer which will remedy these problems.

This will require that you re-build and re-distribute your screensavers.

We will have another annoucement soon.

    Release Notes


  • We are pleased to announce version 6.8 is ready, which includes more fixes for Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey, as well as adding new features for dealing with image metadata, such as the ability to sort a sequence by date and time the picture was taken.

    Release Notes


  • Please note that macOS Monterey has a number of issues, including video playback problems, where movies may get stuck on a certain frame, or play back invisibly. We have identified these as bugs in macOS / WebKit and are hopeful that Apple will fix them before official release.

    In the mean time, we have a new version, 6.8.1 which adds fixes and/or improvements for some of these issues on macOS Monterey.
