              Would I be right in Thinking that
              "New: New random number generation for playlist shuffle"
              Is referring to the New JTFE Version?


              • #9
                nope, the jtfe in 5.094 is a hex patched version of 0.96ff (should have been marked as 0.96fg but benski was sloppy) to fix the DEP issue on XP systems. the random number generator fix is something totally different

                  This is a bit of a weird time to bring it up, but whenever, I go on 'Menu's And Button's' Tab, in the JTFE version budled with Winamp, Winamp crashes, and it then crashes Dr. Watson...


                  • #11
                    if you do a defaults or completely clear out the jtfe ini section in winamp.ini then it won't crash. seems to be down to a change in 0.97R but since i've not done full regression tests with the newer jtfe builds i sort of expected some issue. to be honest i recommend 0.97R over 0.96ff/g anyway (despite the slight issues with the newer builds)

                      I'm just gonna stay with this build for now, as Build 11, of 0.97R is causing me real problems.

                            I installed v5.094 over v5.08c and for the first time ever, Winamp wanted me to reboot after the installation.

                            Why is that?
