Current features include - Support for pixmap image xpm background and login box. - It gives visual feedback as you type the password Shows username and * for each character of password typed. - Bind arbitrary commands to key combinations allows tasks such as pause/un-pause music without unlocking the screen - Optional XFT support for anti-aliased fonts. This is optional in case greater security is desired - Optional Imlib2 support for use of png or jpg formats, which are more appropriate for photos or high-color images than xpm. - Portable to most UNIX-like operating systems, developed on FreeBSD.
