Winamp 5.52, build 1800

1) Re: Fixed: [in_mp3] Ultravox streaming metadata stack overflow (Thanks: Secunia)

This minor .x release is ostensibly a security patch, which was brought ahead of our usual release schedule. New features and Known Bug fixes etc will resume as normal in the next release.

More info

Note that ALL previous versions of Winamp 5.x & 2.x / in_mp3 are affected :-)

2) Re: APEv2 tag support for MP3

Winamp/in_mp3 will only read from/write to existing APEv2 tags,
but will not create new ones from scratch.
The config items for this feature were not implemented in time for this release.
For now, you can enable/disable this feature by editing the relevant values in winamp.ini

[Nullsoft MPEG Decoder]


Tag read order priority = ID3v2, APEv2, Lyrics3, ID3v1

3) 5.52 Wasabi Changes

4) Please refer to the 5.5 & 5.51 Release Notes & Known Bugs sections for more info.
