Commander is a multi-purpose ScreenBlanker module.

It features...

- Clock with standard and internet time
- ScreenMode selection
- Display update delay setting
- Clock/Variable text with color cycling
- User-defined font (2.0)
- User-defined variable display
- User-defined command to launch when blanking
- User-defined command to launch on DPMS Stand-by (2.0)
- User-defined command to launch on DPMS Suspend (2.0)
- User-defined command to launch on DPMS Power off (2.0)
- User-defined command to launch when unblanking

What all this means is that whatever you want your screenblanker to do, like
displaying a picture, slideshow, cartoon, crunching number or anything, you
can make it happen with Commander, "the mother of all blankers" :-)

===============================================================================

HISTORY:

v1.0 (16.09.2006)
- First public release

v1.1 .. 1.5
- Fixed DPMS bug
- Various changes, not good enough for release 

v2.0 (30.09.2007)
- Added a command for each DPMS timer event
- Added possibility to define custom font and size
- Added yellow alerts for failures with fallback fonts
- Made preview font proportional whenever possible
- Changed conflicting shortcuts in settings window
- Time format now follows Locale/Country prefs setting

v2.1 (04.03.2008)
- Added Clock setting to disable opening the clock screen so that Paul E.
  Bloedel's BubbleBlanker can appear on the Workbench
- Skips clock-related code when Clock is off keeping overhead to a minimum
- ScreenMode, Delay, Variable and Font gadgets in the preferences window are
  disabled when Clock is set to None

v2.2 (07.22.2010)
- This release only fixes cosmetic issues which annoyed me, no new features
- The custom screen is now opened/closed behind the Workbench to prevent
  flashing the screen with the color defined for from pen 0 in the palette
- Wrote a new color table generation routine. Now the color cycle loops around
  smoothly, it was jumping straight from blue to red
- Randomized start color so that the text color won't always start from red
- Removed extraneous redrawing of the clock

v2.3 (11.02.2013)
- Added missing Alpha channel value in color table
- Minor code optimizations

===============================================================================

THANKS:

Thanks to all the people on the AmigaWorld and Beta IRC channels who helped me
with my programming questions or tested the blanker, causing me to improve it
more than I had originally planned.

===============================================================================

Enjoy!

Amiga... Duh!
