Nullsoft gaat nog steeds door met de ontwikkeling van Winamp 2, welke onderhand ook bekend is geworden onder de naam Winamp Classic. Sinds vanochtend staat er een beta versie van 2.9 klaar om getest te worden. De volgende release notes vonden we terug op het forum van Nullsoft:
- added integrated full featured video support (NSV and DirectShow (AVI,ASf,MPEG,etc))
- added library (complete with media database, shoutcast listing, playlist editing, CD listing, mass tag editting, plugin API for portable devices, and more!)
- updated Winamp's window docking code to be more robust/extensible
- made AVS dock use this new API
- updated PCM equalizer with code from 4Front Technologies/George Yohng. Quality is a lot better.
- updated equalizer default skin to show the true +12db/-12db range (the 20db was a veeery old typo)
- a ton of new WM_WA_IPC API calls.
- general purpose plugin window support
- extended metadata system for getting more than just title/length of items.
- lots of exposed features via IPC
- updated to PP's latest input and output plugins
- focus/Z order change on window close related bugfixes
- added track numbers and song lengths in HTML generated playlists
- removed all ATL code, shoved EXE size by 20kb
- added digital audio extraction in in_cdda.dll (needs WNASPI32.DLL under Windows 9x/ME)
- added Alt+M shortcut for minimizing Winamp
- added Ctrl+(Keypad +)/Ctrl+(Keypad -) shortcuts in playlist editor for changing font size
- fixed stop after current menu item trash related bug
- added ultravox support for in_mp3
- made in_mp3 not display 'unknown X' for empty id3 tags
- fixed & error in tooltips in winamp and winampa's systray icons
- and more!
- new SDKs will be posted soon.
Nullsoft[break]De volgende drie versies zijn neer te halen:
- the minibrowser page says "upgrade". =)
- running a fullscreen visualization plugin when playing video (or vice versa) can be bad (i.e. cause Winamp to quit). This appears to be a directdraw issue, we'll figure out why.
- new extended skin format may change for 2.90, so don't distribute new skins too widely.
- some AVI/MPEG/ASF/etc videos may be flipped, due to directshow weirdness. We will work to correct this as much as possible.
- Some MPEG2 video decompressors (latest PowerDVD one apparently) may have issues with playback.
- Many more configuration options and fixes should be added in the 2.90 to 2.9x land. Enjoy.
