Notes:

Hidden winamp.ini setting for adjusting overall volume even for files with RG applied
(will be added to ui in 'Prefs -> Playback -> ReplayGain' later)
replaygain_preamp=0 (in 0.001 dB units, i.e. 1000 = 1dB, adjust value to taste, e.g. 6000 for 6dB boost or -1000 for -1dB reduction)

The 'Internal statistics' menu item for modern skins is a beta-only feature and won't be in the final builds (and also, for this reason, will not be translatable)

Winamp Dropbox is an alpha plugin. Use Ctrl+Shift+D to open.
Its actual purpose is still a bit of a mystery, but all shall be revealed in good course...

f263.w5s (used by in_flv) is a beta-only feature and will not be in the final build.

Reporting Bugs:

Please report any issues with the beta in this thread only!
Make sure your report is complete, according to the sticky threads in Bug Reports, ie.
Clean install, no 3rd-party plugins, list of plugins, full step-by-step method of reproduction, relevant system specs, exact error messages, screenshots, which skin (one of Classic, Modern, or Bento only, or all three), links to sample files, etc.
If error reports, screenshots, sample files, etc are smaller than 200kb, then please attach them to your post here. Otherwise, please upload to one of stashbox.org, mediafire.com, or sendspace.com and post the url here (no rapidshare or imageshack or similar links please).
Note that incomplete/lame bug reports may be totally ignored.

__________________________________________________________________________

Known Bugs/Issues:

1. The Bento browser is not localized/translatable in this build, but hopefully should be in time for final release.

2. NowPlaying & ML InfoView pane might be a bit buggy. Note that these issues are constantly being worked on serverside during the entire beta phase. Please ignore (don't report) any script errors in any of the online features. These have been enabled for testing/dev purposes, but will be disabled fully in the final release.

3. The AOL Radio entry in the client whatsnew.txt will not feature until the final release.

4. Some of the lang pack translations might not be fully up-to-date...

5. Rip & Burn / CD Drive views crash when Sonic Engine isn't installed
