Winamp Final Version 5.9 - Download and Thoughts

I started up my old school winamp this morning and noticed that a new version has been released! I was not expecting this as its soo old, and its tiny on my screen now, but it still has all the features that i need in a music player really and it gets the job done. Plus its a classic. 

Bye Winamp version 5.8.... 👋

It seems also that if you click the download button on the new version it crashes the old version, but maybe that was just me? 

Nice! :) 

Winamp 5.9 Final Build 9999

Here is the details from here

Install time for 5.9... Yeah i know not exciting, but a little bit. 

Ok it looks the same as the old version, but less buggy? I didnt notice too many bugs in the old version, but i guess there were some.

Info

This is the culmination of 4 years' work since the 5.8 release.
Two dev teams, and a pandemic-induced hiatus period inbetween.

To the end-user, it might not seem like there's a whole heap of changes,
but the largest and hardest part was actually migrating the entire project from VS2008 to VS2019
and getting it all to build successfully.

The groundwork has now been laid, and now we can concentrate more on features.
Whether fixing/replacing old ones or adding new.


The build # has stayed as 9999 for this release (Beta, RC and Final builds)
(builds can be identified by filename + timestamp).
We'll reset the build number for v5.9.1

When i was a little kid, I was really scared of the dark. But then I came to understand, dark just means the absence of photons in the visible wavelength -- 400 to 700 nanometers. Then i thought, well, its really silly to be afraid of a lack of photons. Then i wasn't afraid of the dark anymore after that.

Random CSS Property

appearance (-moz-appearance, -webkit-appearance)

The appearance CSS property is used to display an element using platform-native styling, based on the operating system's theme. The -moz-appearance and -webkit-appearance properties are non-standard versions of this property, used (respectively) by Gecko (Firefox) and by WebKit-based (e.g., Safari) and Blink-based (e.g., Chrome, Opera) browsers to achieve the same thing. Note that Firefox and Edge also support -webkit-appearance, for compatibility reasons.
