Winamp 5.5 Beta Preview 3 (Build 1600) to 5.5 Final (Build 1640) Changelog

* = 5.36/5.5 beta-specific issues

-New: Fully translatable Localization support

-New: WLZ (Winamp Language Zip) filetype support

-New: [vis_milk2] Milkdrop2 Visualizer

-New: Option to not show the playlist number in the Windows taskbar

-New: %family% ATF string for identifying filetypes (eg. %family% on MP3 returns "MPEG Layer 3 Audio File")

-New: $split() ATF function, used mainly for splitting disc & track strings. Examples: [$num(%track%,2)$IfStrNotEqual($split(%track%,/,1),,/$num($split(%track%,/,1),2))]
If %track% is 5/9, $split(%track%,/,0) returns "5", $split(%track%,/,1) returns "9".
If %track% is 5, $split(%track%,/,0) returns "5", $split(%track%,/,1) returns nothing.

-Improved: Album Art: Delete art working in Alt+3 for external images (note, not working for embedded art until next release), Embedded art showing in Alt+3, art lookup/download service now ignores brackets at end of album (eg. [EP] etc).*

-Improved: Album Art: %album%.jpg path cleaning. Retrieval service now replaces illegal characters in the Album name by using the same naming convention as cd ripping for saving the cover filename. i.e.
? * | are replaced by _ (underscore)
/ \ : are replaced by - (hyphen)
" is replaced by '
< is replaced by (
> is replaced by )
Album Name: Greatest Hits: Why? = cover filename: Greatest Hits- Why_.jpg
Album Name: Vol. 1: "\Bleh/" <|Blah|> = cover filename: Vol. 1- '-Bleh-' (_Blah_).jpg*

-Re: Using .nfo files for album art lookup
If there's an .nfo file in the same folder as the album files with the exact name as an image file (jpg, jpeg, gif, bmp) then Winamp will see said image, eg. "Pink Floyd - Animals - cover.nfo" & "Pink Floyd - Animals - cover.jpg" (see release notes above for lookup criteria order).
