Multimedia software producer Xochi Media Inc announces the release of iScreensaver Designer version 4.0, the world's only multi-platform screensaver editor.

First released in 1998, iScreensaver Designer is a cross-platform screensaver editor for Macintosh and Windows. iScreensaver will convert QuickTime-compatible images, movies, and Adobe Flash (SWF) files into a standard screensaver with user-friendly installer.

"We looked into adding minor features to version 3.5 or doing a major update to prepare for the future," described iScreensaver creative director Brett Spivey. "We chose the major upgrade, which took a little longer, but we're really happy about our new foundation built specifically for Snow Leopard, Windows 7, and beyond."

Version 4.0 provides support for the next generation of hardware and software: Mac OS X 10.6, Windows 7, and 64-bit CPUs with fast OpenGL graphics cards. All iScreensaver users are encouraged to upgrade.

Features in Version 4.0:

Mac OS X 10.6 and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit).
