The Pro & Full installers are the same for this release (No OpenCandy/Emusic/AOLSearch/Toolbar).

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...


Known Issues

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.
