MX14 is nagging about xscreensaver needing update, although it still works OK.
But the nag is annoying :frown:
Please supply an update if not too difficult.

What version does

Code: Select all

apt-cache xscreensaver
say you have installed? There's a 5.34 in the test repo; if that's tripped the time bomb, I'll see about getting a newer Debian version without the time bomb in the repo. Or maybe another maintainer will want to grab it, I just kicked off an hours-long rebuild of libwebkit2 2.14.6 from jessie-backports for our repo.

Thanks, Stevo.
Yes 5.34 is installed.
Of course this is not urgent, just would like to get rid of the nag some time.

OK, 5.36 is packaged, uploaded, and I asked Tim to put it into the main repo to get rid of the nag.
