  • adds sound back, this time using the BASS library
  • adds variability to code color: the hue and intensity sliders are right under color selection
  • adds F12 to display or hide FPS and counters while the screensaver runs
  • adds speed control using +/– keyboard buttons (numeric part) while the screensaver runs
  • adds automatic check for updates (can be turned off) right to the first page of the settings window
  • adds optional feedback with short hardware digest and/or usage statistics for further improvements
      Please review checkboxes that are right on the first page for the things the screensaver sends.
      Opting in to statistics will help me decide what to optimize better and where can I go with future effects.

  • fixes wrong clipping (black bands on top or bottom) on some multimonitor setups
  • fixes console restart effect

  • improves rendering quality (crispness) on multiple monitors with different DPI
  • improves precision of the FPS counter
  • improves default settings (number of columns and rows, trilinear anisotropic filter by default, etc.)
  • improves uninstaller (deletes itself cleanly)

  • removes contact form, visit www.thematrixscreensaver.com/contact instead

  • known issue: might crash on missing/off GPU drivers, or when run through RDP
  • known issue: 32-bit version may run a few FPS slower (or use a few more percents of CPU)
