iScreensaver has been updated to version

iScreensaver version 6.8.4 has a number of bug-fixes and improvements, including several bugs that could cause playback failure on multi-monitor macOS Apple Silicon / M1 systems or the macOS Ventura 13.0 beta. Authors who are building screensavers that may be encountering any of these issues should update, re-build, and re-distribute their screensavers.

Release Notes
We are pleased to announce the release of iScreensaver version 6 which supports macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) through 11 (Big Sur) and Windows 7 through 10. Read about Version 6

macOS screensaver installer fails to launch on non English language system

We have identified an issue where a screensaver installer will fail to launch on macOS systems where the language is not English. For example, we are seeing this on Korean-language systems.

As a workaround, you can temporarily set the system language to English.

  • Open System Preferences, and select Language & Region.
  • Click the Plus (+) button, add English and drag it above your currently selected language, as shown here:

  • Then, restart the computer, install the screensaver, then set the language back afterwards.

We are working on a fix and should have a new release shortly.
