This is the best release of Winamp ever, imo, but let's just hope & pray that it's not the last...
However, this will be the last AOL/Nullsoft release of Winamp :-(
See the download page for more info.
A big thank you to all our users, former team members, beta testers, moderators, translators, skinners,
plugin developers, preset & color theme designers, community members, everyone... for everything...
Some mp3 files might cause Winamp to crash.
If you experience this issue, then please use in_mp3.dll from build 3512 instead (Info | Download).
Weird black pixels on corners of Bento & Modern skin notifier. Fixed png files available here.
* Playing MP3 files
* Display of media library (more or less...see below)
* New, single window Bento skin (more or less...see below)
What does not
* The media library has a two problems. One cosmetic, one usage-related.
* The cosmetic flaw: Parts of the media library are transparent
* Any action taken from the Library menu causes the program to stop responding requiring a forced quit.
* The playlist and media library both have standard classic Winamp coloring and window frames at least under Bento skin.
What was not tested
* Most other features not tested this time, update to come later
It seems to run OK, and it will play files. The feature I'm looking for, the Auto Fill feature for portable devices, will crash the program because it involves clicking buttons in the Media Library. Other than a few cosmetic differences in font display, it looks and runs passably.

For optimal experience using application install the following DLLs from winetricks:
-directx9 (Overkill but helps in the long run)
-ie8 (For web browser functionality)
winetricks comctl32 directmusic directplay directx9 gdiplus ie8 mfc42 vcrun6
you use the modern skin you might need to enlarge the main window for
the media library to show up.
