foobar2000 10th anniversary special:
Classic User Interface

Thanks Peter, thats really cool.
Congratulations for such remarkable milestone.

I couldn´t help myself from recovering my very first version from an old backup CD:  12/29/2002  00:56

It seems it´ll be 30 days more before I become a 10 years user   

For the celebration, lets remember how it all started: [a href='index.php?act=findpost&pid=131702']First version of Foobar[/a]

Wish +10 years hard work continuation
I guess only developer(s) knows what it takes to make product that appears so simple and cute, while letting user, more or less, total control over precious audio library

Can someone post a screenshot of new component

[00:31] <zZzZzZz> foobar2000.
[00:31] <ath> foobar2000?
[00:32] <JensRex> I like the idea of not trying to come up with a fancy "cool" smartass name.
[00:32] <JensRex> Like "Tha Playa" from DivX.
[00:32] <zZzZzZz> i like the idea of trying not to come up with a fancy "cool" smartass icon.
[00:32] <zZzZzZz> :B
[00:33] <JensRex> That too
[00:33] <JensRex> Any particular reason why it isn't plugin based?
[00:34] <JensRex> It's going to be huge, supporting all those formats.
[00:34] <zZzZzZz> i have mp3/vorbis/mpc/mod/spc already
[00:34] <zZzZzZz> and somehow its not huge
[00:34] <zZzZzZz> plugins are considered

[00:45] <zZzZzZz> ok, ftp updated with 0.03a
[00:45] <zZzZzZz> added ctrl+a / del / up/down cursors
[00:45] <zZzZzZz> + home / end

[00:46] <zZzZzZz> this will be all over HA in a few days prolly seeing how popular it gets after one day

[a href='index.php?act=findpost&pid=131471']This post[/a] points to foobar2000 v0.3c that it is currently unavailable though foobar2000 v0.43 is ok.

My 0.3x series and several others were uploaded by [a href='index.php?act=findpost&pid=334394']rjamorim[/a] long ago on Really Rare Wares but you´ll have to get them from web archive.

Maybe [a href='index.php?act=findpost&pid=352245']Thundik81[/a] can share his collection again (which includes the 0.2x series !!!).
