brennan says an alpha might be out by this month!
and what does this mean "back-port everything into Winamp2"?

It means that brennan is worried (maybe) That justin will look at winamp3 alpha and put all the cool and funky features into winamp 2.9millionandone within about 6 seconds of seeing it...

What's the big deal about a new version number anyway? I don't care if it is released as Winamp 2.9 millionandone, as long as it is better and more featured. But I'll be happy with it whenever it comes out.. No big hurry as long as Winamp 2.71 still works. BTW: woohoo, 200 posts

Do you think version number's are starting to become a big influence on people's decision to get a program/application? I mean, You hear this kinda of stuff everywhere. New VERSION 6.0, bigger and faster...blah blah blah...in a lot of cases, previous versions have a better build then the newer one even though it is said things have been improved...some improvements probably dun go to the person's liking.

it sounds as if there will be two or three betas... first will be the private beta to the moderators and plugin developers, second to people who made the beta list, and a third public beta. i dont know if thats still the plan, though.

I'd like to meet a mad man who makes it all seem sane
To work out all these troubles and what there is to gain

Why don't we just let them all be public for all of us non-mods?

Because beta testing needs to be controlled. Releasing the first beta to the whole world would not serve much purpose. Thats why most beta testing phases are only sent to beta testers who know what they are doing and can properly give feedback. Thats all they need is a million emails of bug reports from people who don't know what they are talking about.

The betas of winamp 2.xx that were released recently were different, since Winamp was already pretty stable at the time.

Just a little off-topic question...
Ice, do you know what exactly is needed for someone to be considered a "plugin developer"? I mean, will I receive the beta if my plug-in is published on winamp.com?
