Thank you to the user who flagged 5.42 out of date. JWZ (upstream) complains a lot about package maintainers not packaging the new stuff... And then (afaik) doesn't provide any way to subscribe to updates (rss, email..). So I don't know something's wrong until someone tells me.

5.44 is out now, and required re-writing the entire xmatrix-color thing. Please let me know if it no longer works for you.

OK, I made a quick hack to get the color shifting working on 5.39. It's not good and will probably need a second pass, but should hopefully compile as-is for you.

Thanks for marking as out-of-date. I have yet to find a mailing list or anything from jwz, so updates largely pass me by.

The latest version of upstream xmatrix replaces the old xpm/xbm files with png ones, which breaks all of my changes. I'm going to see if it's possible to tweak things to work, but right now it looks to be over my head.

Thanks Barikad. I'll bring this package forward to 5.34 as soon as I get a chance.

*29-10-2015: Done. We're now compiling with xscreensaver-5.34.
