The xscreensaver program waits until the keyboard and mouse have been idle for a period, and then runs a graphics demo chosen at random. It turns off as soon as there is any mouse or keyboard activity. It can also lock the screen (immediately, after a longer idle period, or on demand.) Whats new in this release: Updates to critical, bsod, xflame, and flow. Made xscreensaver-demo install itself into the Gnome Control Center. Removed xscreensaver-demo's Ok and Cancel buttons, since they were confusing people: all changes are now instantanious.
