Probably this
...instead of imagining a Pheonix rising glorious and regal from the ashes, think tired and grumpy leaning out of bed to hit the snooze button on the alarm.

The 5.8 release is a reaction to a previous leaked beta.
It has a few fixes and updates, but not much in the way of features.
Radionomy promise a new alternative Winamp is in the works, but they are more focused on the mobile market.
The jury is still out.

In the mean time while you wait for something you could try the alternative WACUP build from a more active developer that has added many new features.

The future is bleak.

Here, u have a company buying Winamp and totally blowing it. Leave it to the French (or Belgians or whatever they are) to ruin an iconic name in computer audio. C'est la vie!

So until someone with a brain buys it from them, I don't see it ever getting better.

Then u have wacup, which on the one hand seems to be the only hope for Winamp-ish progression, but I figure sooner or later the lawyers will step in, and I don't understand why such an endeavor, given the history involved, is not open source? That seems to be the Achilles heel to it, bc it makes one wonder about the devs motivations and it seemingly makes that Dev more vulnerable to the aforementioned lawyers.

What a sad way for such a great product to peter out. I love bento, smart views, and just the way the app works. I doubt media monkey or foobar will ever replicate that feeling. Ugh, just sad.

There should be no way to stop DrO working on WACUP unless he mysteriously disappeared.
Currently it requires a real full Winamp distro as the base, so no changes are in the Winamp original files.
Thankfully the new components are being released as open source where the licences allow.
Eventually all original components will be replaced and we then have a full separate and compatible Winamp clone.

Radionomy are most likely going to release something very different to Winamp 5, so it will offer a different experience.
Winamp 6 and WACUP will overlap in features (so does VLC), but I think they may gain different users anyway.
Radionomy don't really have a lot of choice when it comes to which platform to focus on.
Since the previous sale of Winamp, the Android OS has become the most installed and used all over the planet.
Only a fool would focus on the desktop market first.
Having said that, Radionomy must be aware that an important part of many homes is the media player on your desktop.
They are definitely aware that to run a radio stream properly also requires a good desktop solution.

Radionomy have 3 products to think about intended to work as a whole. Without enough devs working on it, if we see anything it should be mobile first, then a desktop client more focused on DJs.

Count on a murkin to blame everything on foreigners, completely ignoring the state of winamp at the end of AOL's ownership.

So if the guy who had full access to the iTunes code left Apple in a huff and wrote an iTunes clone, u think Apple would just go "no problem"?

I don't think so.

This isn't how proper reverse engineering is done.

Maybe radionomy doesn't care, or maybe they are just waiting until he finishes to sue and demand ownership of his work, who knows? They are stupid and incompetent so anything is possible, but to say that there is no risk or no case is woefully off the mark.

So the vast majority of the work is being released as open source? That's a smart move. What few items don't allow it?

Also, if radionomy is no longer interested in a desktop client as u say, they should make the entire thing open source, regardless of wacup or anything else.
