Well, you don't provide links to older releases of that plugin, which was more stable than this v2 plugin is right now
You should provide download links for both versions, at least until v2 plugin becomes as stable (usable) as v1 was. No offence, but v1 plugin has worked for many years for me, without any problems (or I was not aware of those, dunno) and this v2 just doesn't work right. It constantly crashes with access violations, which is definitely not what others would want too.
I've been forced to reinstall entire Winamp and v1 plugin in order to have my stable stream flow and I'll check from time to time to see if v2 plugin has become stable. Until then, I'm just suggesting what would be the best bridge between those 2 worlds. But ok, it's your call.
