I don't think they have added any new screensavers yet, and do you really need one on by default?

Screensavers are deprecated in favor of powering down the display.

Then adjust your power plan to meet your needs.

well i had it on powersaver standard setting, i supposed it should power down the screen, and put it into sleep.

Btw, i had my music player going though, but still, it should have shut off the screen

My grandkids like the bubbles screensaver. They can't understand why I can't make it so they can pop them one at a time with the mouse curser.

Dude, I totally agree with them. That would be cool. Except how would the screen saver ever turn off?
