Yay, my first message in the forum!
Just checked out Winamp 5 RC8, not bad, indeed. But I'm still going to use Winamp 3 at home, despite of its numerous annoying bugs and ultimately slow loading times.
Winamp 5 greatly resembles Winamp 2, except that it has CD Burning support and Modern skins. And it is not as comfortable to use as Winamp 3. Apart from those two new features, what else new has indeed been introduced in the new version of the greatest media player on Earth that I know?
Well, for once I see that you have included a multiple-playlist feature. But only as a feature of the Media Library. What about the users who don't use it (like me)? In WA3 it was much more comfortable to use it, as it was just next to the playlist, and in no way connected to any media libraries. Why did you not make this in WA5 (or did I miss it?)
Also, where did the great Enqueue/Dequeue feature from WA3 go? It was really nice to listen to a randomized playlist and then, from time to time, schedule some songs to be played in a row. This and the previous feature are mainly the only things that I see good in WA3 and why I still use it. (Otherwise it has COUNTLESS bugs).
I had hoped that the new WA would bring together all the good features from WA2 (fast loading) and WA3 (multiple playlists, enqueue/dequeue/etc.) So far I hace seen only a bit upgraded WA2...
