comment:1 by Tim Tassonis, 4 months ago

     X11: Major refactor of the xscreensaver daemon for improved security, dividing it into three programs: xscreensaver, xscreensaver-gfx and xscreensaver-auth.
    X11: Dropped support for systems older than X11R7 (2009).
    X11: Renamed xscreensaver-demo to xscreensaver-settings.
    X11: Unlock dialog has user-selectable color schemes.
    X11: Everything uses XFreeType for fonts now.
    X11: Install a few custom fonts needed by some savers.
    X11: Fading works on systems without gamma (e.g. Raspberry Pi).
    X11: Use EGL instead of GLX when available.
    X11: xscreensaver-systemd now detects when a video player has inhibited screen blanking and then exits without uninhibiting.
    Improved GLSL and GLES3 support: Phong shading in etruscanvenus, hypertorus, klein, projectiveplane,`romanboy' and sphereeversion.
    Updates to cubicgrid.
    macOS: Added a Random XScreenSaver screen saver, which implements cycle mode, among other things.
    iOS: Also added cycle mode.

Fixed in revision 24428.

Seems that xscreensaver finally switched to freetype2 and does not require Xorg Legacy Fonts anymore. I reflected that in the dependencies.
