The default Windows Media Foundation AAC encoder is limited to AAC-LC only, i.e. it doesn't do HE-AAC

We made the 5.8 installer not delete enc_aac / enc_fhgaac on upgrades, so it will still be there.
For clean installs, you'll need to grab it from the 5.666 installer or elsewehere......
For the average user, installing 5.666 and then immediately installing 5.8 on top might be the best way to go.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
