    -Re: Improved: [ml_local/in_mp3] Write ratings to POPM frame in id3v2 tags:

    _ This is still a work-in-progress and support is currently enabled via a hidden .ini option only.
    _ With Winamp closed, open %AppData%\Winamp\Plugins\gen_ml.ini in Notepad.
    _ Add the following line: writeratings=1
    _ Save gen_ml.ini

    _ We are now using the standard WMP 0-256 scale for 1-5 ratings (read & write).
    _ For mp3, ratings are written to the POPM id3v2 frame.

    _ Support for other formats (wma, ogg, flac, mp4) to be implemented later.

    -Re: Improved: New 256x256 icons for Win7/Vista (with filetypes support via gen_jumpex):

    _ The built-in icon support is for winamp.exe, winampa.exe and the installer/uninstaller.
    _ Filetype support is provided via the native Jump to File Extra plugin (gen_jumpex.dll)
    _ and, at long last, implements different icons for different filetypes :-)
    _ A selection of Icon library packs is available below.
    _ Close Winamp. Install the icon pack (icon dll's are installed to the %ProgramFiles%\Winamp\Icons folders). Open Winamp.
    _ You can change/select icon packs via: Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Jump to File -> Extras
    _ The "Enable File Types prefs page additions" option should be checkmarked (icon pack installation enables it).
    _ Select the icon pack of your choice via the drop-down menu.
    _ Click 'Allow'/'Continue' if presented with a UAC prompt (on Win7/Vista).
    _ Although the following will be automatically enabled, you can confirm the icon pack is active by:
    _ 1) Going to the "Prefs -> File Types" page and making sure both the File & Playlist icons are set to the very bottom position on the slider.
    _ 2) Opening any folder in Windows containing Winamp-associated filetypes and seeing the icon(s) change in real-time.

    _ Icon Pack preview/presentation video (wmv, 18mb)

    -Re: New: [ml_downloads] Improved download manager for Podcasts and Online Services:

    _ The "Downloads" view in the media library is now a separate node.
    _ There's a hidden .ini option available to make it return to old behaviour (where it was a child of the Podcast Directory):

    _ %AppData%\Winamp\Plugins\gen_ml.ini --> podcast_parent=1

    _ You can also set the following to make the Downloads view always-visible:
    _ no_auto_hide=2

    -Re: Improved: [ml_wire] Various tweaks to Subscriptions view:

    _The 'Time' and 'Size' columns will only be populated for new subscriptions,
    _and only if the relevant data is available in the rss feed.

    -Re: Improved: [pmp_ipod] Support for newer gen Classic models:

    _ 5th gen Classic iPod models are now supported.
    _ Alas, support for iPod models using sqlite database (iPhone, Touch & 5th gen Nano models) is still not implemented :-(
    _ Maybe for the next major release... we shall see....

    Clean install, no 3rd-party plugins, list of plugins, full step-by-step method of reproduction, relevant system specs,
    exact error messages, screenshots, which skin (one of Classic, Modern, or Bento only, or all three), links to sample files, etc.

    For problems with AVI, MKV & MP4/M4V videos, be sure to also tell us what the video & audio codecs are...
    Relevant info can be found via the "View File Info" (Alt+3) dialog

    Note that incomplete/lame bug reports may be totally ignored.


    Known Issues:

    -The installer might appear to freeze on older/slower systems during the "Optimizing..." phase towards the end.
    _Please be patient. It hasn't frozen, and will get there eventually...

    -Subtitle support still isn't implemented yet (.srt for AVI; Sub Station Alpha/Advanced SSA for MKV)

    -File info & length/metadata detection for streaming (http) avi isn't implemented yet

    -h.263 inside MP4 container still needs a lot of work (support has therefore been disabled until the next release)

    -The Korean & Chinese language packs have not been updated for this release.
    _Some new dialogs/options/etc may not be visible when using any of these packs.
    _If anyone is willing to help in updating them, then please say so below, or send a PM to DJ Egg.
    _Check out the documentation first to help you determine whether or not you'll be capable...
    _Some of the other lang packs have only been partially updated
    _(the French, German, Polish, Turkish, Portuguese-Br, Japanese, Russian & Romanian packs are fully/mostly up-to-date).
    _You can also send me a PM if you spot any inaccurate translations in any of the other lang packs,
    _or if you can provide translations for any strings that are still in English (be sure to be specific).

      Exciting! A new release

      However, Koopa, the Essentials installer doesn't seem to work for me. None of my plugins appear to get updated after running it..

      Also, Pawel, all the filetype icons seem to be askew in your Black theme.. my mp3s show up as MPC and I renamed one to an mp2 and it shows as MP4. The icons LOOK great though

          Honestly I cannot reproduce your issue. It's working fine here and I wonder, that it was working before for you. *shrugs*

          All EP installer I did use the SetOverWrite IfNewer statement, but no idea why it fails for you.

          Please lemme know if this fixes your issue:

          I'm forcing an overwrite of the existing files.

            koopa: i bet it is because all the plug in dlls are re-based which will change the file time (done in the optimising stage of the install process).

            osmosis: is it just the black theme which has issues or any other ones (just want to double-check before it is looked into).

            Just looks like the black one is wrongly indexed for some of the icons and also seems to be missing a few - a simple fix for pawel to do

              Osmosis, DrO:
              I have to say I must confirm... In some way it displays MPC instead of Mp3 in my Black (and only in Black) icon library... will try to investigate it...

              I think i found the reason... fixing...

              Ps: I hope, you like it...
              and... Winamp rules!

              Edit: Black Icon Library has beed fixed. Sorry for that.

                dsp_sps.dll - still no joy with this, config is greyed out.

                Looks OK on XP, maybe a win7 problem.



                • #9
                  not too sure what you mean as the dialog all appears to work ok when i just tried it though it did look a bit washed out but that seems to be the case with some dialogs on Win7 anyway. i know the dialog needs to be fixed to use the correct font and have some unicode ui support but not sure when that will happen.

                    Analyzer Viz is still a little bit slow comparing to 5.56 in default settings
                    Even on the fastest mode is not 100% fluid.
                    I know this is detail but still is...

                      The build # is now 2975

                      The only differences between 2974 and 2975 are:
                      -French lang pack has been updated
                      -in_avi, in_cdda & pmp_ipod plugin versions have been bumped (no actual code changes)

                      I've also reuploaded and updated the links which fix the above-reported issues with the icon pack and Essentials Pack.

                          Any chance for an update installer 5.572 -> 5.58?

                          BTW, after installing 5.58 over 5.572 (including the essentials), I receive "IN_CUE.dll not found". Dunno if this is related to my plug-ins or to the Winamp update.

                            it's easier to just get the complete installer as most of the plug-ins were altered in some way after 5.572 so just an update pack wouldn't be that much different in size.

                            as for the in_cue.dll thing, sounds like you've one of the cue player plug-ins installed and its no longer compatible with this newer Winamp version.

                              Hmm, OK. So I'll better uninstall that plug-in for now, thanks.
