Latest Versions of Winamp

I presume that the last Final Version of Winamp is version 5.666 Build 3516. But I have come across a few beta versions after that. The latest beta version I have come across is Winamp 5.7.3367.

I would be grateful if a knowledgeable Member of the Forum clarifies the situation whether one should use the latest stable version or upgrade to a beta. i have tried the latest beta and it works quite well.

I don't know if you know whats going on, but I'll summarize. Winamp was sold in late 2013, both 5.666 Build 3516 and 5.7.3367 are based on code before the sale happened.

DJ Egg is still part of the dev team (at the time of this post), and he has hinted that there might be a beta coming out this year from the new owners.

My opinion, obviously I would recommend the current stable version and wait for the next version from the new owners.

Winamp v5.7.3367 was a failed beta release that tried to get Winamp to work with files stored in the 'cloud' (servers on the internet) and was released before v5.666.3516 in the summer of 2013. 5.666.3516 was released in December 2013.

The patched version of 5.666.3516 released early in 2014 is the latest stable version (http://meggamusic.co.uk/winamp/Winamp_Download.htm).

When Winamp is the active app, press the Ctrl and F1 keys at the same time to open the Winamp About window. A list of all the stable 5.x versions released is included (from the version you have back to 5.0) along with other information.
