New Winamp in Early 2016, but don’t get your hopes up

A former Winamp employee revealed on the official Winamp forum that a new version of the popular music player will be released in early 2016.

It looked like Winamp would be a thing of the past in 2013 when AOL announced that it would shut down the service. The company changed its mind shortly thereafter, and sold all Winamp assets -- including the popular Shoutcast platform -- to Radionomy.

The new owner of Winamp promised to step up the game and produce new versions of the client, but failed to do so.

In the now almost two years that followed, no new version of Winamp had been created and the only thing that happened was that the frontpage of the website was redesigned promising that "more is coming soon" and "the best is yet to come".

Blame Radionomy's Legal department for the hold up: If it wasn't for them we would have had a new version by now.

Other than keeping it stable and optimized with the updates of operating systems and computer/device hardware, do we really need newer versions? I love Winamp the way it is, so long as it remains fully functional.

Don't forget to live before you die.
