Notes / FAQ:

The main thing to notice is that 5.65 Final build 3438 is the same as 5.7 Beta build 3437
except that the Winamp Cloud components from 5.7 aren't included in 5.65

We've kept the 5.64 changelog here because the in-client update flag hasn't been enabled yet.
Once it is switched on, users will be able to see all the changes made since 5.63

5.64 Notes

5.64 released 21 June 2013

Re: Improved: Windows 8 filetype association compatibility
The "File Types" page in Winamp Prefs has been made Win8-compatible.
Associations in Win8 can now only be made via the Default Programs Control Panel in Windows.

Re: Improved: Added 'Explore item folder' to context menu in playlists
The installer will delete the (now-deprecated) "Find File On Disk" plugin from the Winamp Essentials Pack

Re: Improved: [in_mp4] Write ratings to tags (using the "rate" atom)
Requires "Save ratings to file for compatible formats (default: off)" to be checkmarked in: Prefs > Media Library > Library Options.

Re: Improved: [ml_local] New 'Date Added' column (smart views adjusted accordingly)
The old "Recently Added" view has now become "Recently Modified"
and is available via the Presets dropdown in the "Add Smart View" dialog.
The new "Recently Added" view now uses Date Added instead of Date Modified.

I can't post in the 5.7 beta thread, so i'll post here instead:

kind of a strange issue, might already be resolved in internal builds, idk. but I had a file I DL'd from the net, it had an embedded artwork in it. I put it in its own folder, played it with winamp, and double clicked the ticker to get the alt+3 dialog. went to the artwork tab, where it showed the artwork as embedded, and of the type "jpeg"

I did a "save as" and the dialog for that said "save as type: jpeg file" and put Folder for the file name.

the result was a " Folder.gif " file! why a gif? now maybe the artwork in the file really is a gif, idk, but something seems amiss here. not saying I know what should be done either.

here is a link to the file:

http://www.4shared.com/mp3/9SmFFaBn/...ptain_Rid.html

[merged]

ok, I just did this with another file, and I may be on to something...

this time, winamp said it was a png. so I told it png and yet it saved as a bmp. then I told it jpeg, and it saved as a gif! I picked bmp, and it saved it as a png!

so I think there is some kind of misalignment in the save as dialog, where its not picking the native format extension, and whatever you pick, it picks something else. its not random though, it always does png when I pick bmp. seems like a mapping issue.

now fixed internally - was introduced in a beta build before the 5.65 release.

If you have issues with Winamp or still want to get it, ensure
you get v5.666 build 3516 and the required plug-in updates

just for clarity, are you simply saying around when the bug was introduced? to ask another way, is the bug in 5.65? (my beta was the last, 3444)

out of my own curiosity, was the fix pre or post my report?

also, will the fix make the 'save as' dialog default to the native extension it finds embedded?

bug in 5.65.
post report.
not unless it's coded - as it was changed in v5.65 to remember the last selection instead of a random default (with the default set as jpeg) so i don't intend on altering that again.

thx for those answers, and its not a big deal at all for me so i'm not asking for a change, but i'm just curious why have it default to jpeg and/or the last selection? why would you not have it default to what it actually finds in the file? i'm missing the intent here I guess?

also, does it actually "convert" the file? meaning, if I find a bmp in the file, and save as a png, does winamp actually convert the image format, or does it just give the file an erroneous extension?

again, i'm just curious as to the mechanics, not asking for any changes. I can live with manually picking and matching the extension.

i'm following the assumption that is used in the rest of the code that most artwork is generally jpeg (so jpeg should be selected the first time the feature is used) and then making it use the last selection (so it'd generally stay as jpeg unless changed) as the filter remembering is what i personally wanted from the feature (as when i have artwork in files, i'm using a consistent format so messing with re-selecting things is not needed if i just want to dump the artwork). call it selfish but having spent a few days going over most of the code (including causing this 5.65 breakage, i wanted something for me out of it).

it was converting the file even if saving a jpeg as a jpeg. that has now been fixed after ~2hrs work to make use of the mime type so saving a jpeg as a jpeg will now dump the contents as-is. saving a jpeg or anything else into a different format will still convert to that format since that's what's being asked for (irrespective of any quality loss that can arise).

Good news, as the converting of a jpeg to a jpeg (or any format to itself) was what was deemed undesirable.

Converting one format into another could result in some quality loss using any other conversion tool, so Winamp is not alone in this. Perfect translations are nearly impossible. If users want an image to look almost exactly the same, they should not convert it's format into something else (unless they are using the original raw data).


OFF TOPIC: Did this code review shed any light on why the 'fix' for deleting an embedded image in a flac file, broke thinktink's plug-in's ability to embed an image in a flac?

this will be a nice fix in the next release.

any thought to an artwork column that sorts by image type?

I don't think DrO implied that (converting everything). He said he only uses the same image format and did not want to have to select it each time, if it was not the same as the dialog's default. So changing the default to something else would switch it to the other (or last?) format selected for the next time the dialog was used.

yup, and there were notes to do it, just it was until everything else done in 5.64/5.65 that it's been possible to reliably do it. it'll still fall back to converting if the info from the file tag is junk but that generally should not happen.

wasn't even aware of there being issues. though i suspect it's more likely down to what needed to be changed in in_flac to get it to behave correctly under native usage.

i neither understand the point of this post, nor do i agree with it. if he wants the same format then he is converting everything to the chosen format, except obviously whatever is already that format.

it doesn't matter how / what i do for the original encoding of the artwork i use (embedded or external), how the export action and how the dialog is handled works as what i wanted and that's that.

I know you're very busy and can't be expected to remember every little thing. This was mentioned in post #20 of the thread linked below. You were having an argument with the OP of the thread at the time, so that could also help explain why you forgot about it.

So, that being clear, were there users having problems that this was changed or in other words, devolved? Before you could select all audio xor video files to be associated in one go. Now, you have to go to control panel and choose them one by one if you only want audio or only video. Just asking as I only use winamp for audio and find this an 'illogical' move from my perspective since I have to go one by one. Seems like it only caters to the audience that want to use winamp to play everything.

the change was made because how the old way worked is blocked by Windows 8 and so it had to be changed to the way it is now in that the final association of files to a programme is meant to be done in the way we do it and as other programmes have been doing. technically the same should be done on vista and higher but as they still work, it was left as-is.

and under all of our testing and a stream of bugs and abusive uninstall complaints, the prior mode just didn't work properly on windows 8 for most.

we still can say what formats we support but the final association has to be done via the OS control panel.

Are we talking about 5.65 or 5.7 beta?

Under 5.65 I don't see any change to the file types dialog in Winamp. At least in Win XP it seems to work the way it always did (and I personally would prefer that this would continue to work in XP also in future versions... )

the file types prefs / registration change (which appeared in v5.64) is a Windows 8+ change only. XP didn't need changes (same for Vista and Windows 7) which is why it's the same for you and will remain the same until XP dies.

@DrO Thanks for the updates to the enhancer and the Time Restore plugin. They are my most used plugins on Winamp and it's really good to see them active.
@DjEgg and the Winamp Devs- Thanks for the awesome work and looking forward to the version 5.7

any plug-in updates from me are basically me trying to catch up with the work / changes i've done on Winamp and applying what i've learnt / changed with the API's back into them so they should keep going without any further updates for a few more years (subject to further OS / Winamp changes).but good to know that some people are happy to see updates for the plug-ins (even if it is as i say just generally compatibility updates).

and i'd expect to see something like another 5.6x release (probably 5.66) before there's a 5.7 release which will help resolve some more newer Windows issues and general fixes / tweaks based on the feedback had since 5.65 was released (well that's what i'm aiming for with a newer 5.6x release ).

If you have issues with Winamp or still want to get it, ensure
you get v5.666 build 3516 and the required plug-in updates

5.66 is still scheduled to be the next release with 35 items currently in the main changelog but there's been a lot more little things done towards it to fix things where possible, though there's still a number areas (typically syncing) which hasn't seen any attention.
