next winamp version: v8?

hey guys.

i hope this is the right place and i also hope this question hasn't been asked before:

anyway...i was wondering if someone knows if the guys of nullsoft are already working/thinking on/about the next version of winamp.
i also ask myself:"will they REALLY call it winamp 8????"
I mean because of this:
*We think that a Fibonacci sequence for versioning might be pretty damn cool.
you can find that statement here.
because the next version would already be 12.... and i think that would go too fast ...think about it....then 20, 32, 52,84.... sick *LMAO*
imagine that conversation: -"hey, which version of winamp are you using?"
-"i'm not sure,32 or 52 i guess."
*LOL*
anyway..
anyone got answers for me?

(i.e.: No, nobody knows what will come out when and where and why.)

hm.. k.. thought it wouldn't be necessary to mention it that clear, but it'S seems i have to:
i don't mean an update on the current version, i mean a really new version of winamp... like wa2,wa3,wa5,....
perhaps the developpers know...

Hey, it wasn't meant to be offensive.
Just thought I should post a link to that thread so you'd know (and summarize it)...
But ok, your question actually is about something else...

well i guess it could be, but in theory since 3 is already part of 5 (3 + 2) there is no reason to add 3 to 5 again.

I also have no clue what would even warrrent this major version change... I guess a couple years and and some big tech improvements will tell?

Not really, Winamp3 was the name of the product (as opposed to Winamp). If it did become 4, it would be Winamp 4.xx, not Winamp4 1.xx. Winamp 5.xx is a continuation of the Winamp 2.xx line.
