I saw DJ Egg post somewhere that skinners werent taking adavntage of new feature like the notifier. What he, and many others, dont seem to realize is that was made for the skin and a new one would have to be created by any author who wished to have one. Until now
Basically its a plug-and-play notifier (kinda like a maki cheat...but i dont want this to get lost in that monster thread), which can easily be thrown into any skin, and is easily customized, with the .m sourcefile. Its not perfect, but close, to the original in the Winamp Modern Skin.
Now, I had to disable the resizing per-songtitle feature becuase it got kinda buggy. If you can fix it, you can fix it, but its set to a pretty good standard width. Also, Fading of layouts seems broke in 5.02 (just check the Winamp Modern's notifier or the nullsoft easter egg), but assuming it starts working again with future releases (or use 5.00 or 5.01), the fading works fine. Instructions for use in the readme.txt.
*note: compiled with the 5.02 mc.exe and std.mi. Should work fine if recompiled with an earlier version, but if used out of the box, will not work on pre-5.02 versions of winamp.
Feel free to distribute this, but keep original credits where they belong
