News on Winamp 2.77

This will be the first post in what I hope will be more frequent updates to the news, covering a wider variety of issues, including software releases, etc.  Let's get those submissions coming!

Winamp 2.77:
* mb.ini skin support (Winamp/MBOpen)
* added page and slider for 'shuffle morph rate' to Preferences so you can
  control how much the playlist morphs (mutates) each time it cycles
  through.
* PP's ACM disk writer output plug-in instead of the classic one
* PP's WAV/VOC reader (Which is apparently so much better, but we will see)
* included new in_midi and in_mod (yay)
* made playlist editor automatically size down when necessary (on startup)
* made drag&drop playlist URLs work
* made alt+delete work again in playlist editor
* made winamp.exe and winampa.exe both much less likely to fudge HKCR/.
* fixed drag&drop in vis areas
* made Winamp handle language packs that lack strings and/or dialogs better
* made physical file remover ask you for every file, to prevent disasters
* fixed issues with using a large number of input plug-ins and extensions in
  open box (I think)
* fixed a small "bug" in the id3 editor of in_mp3
* fixed the frame count bug in id3 editor of in_mp3
* made general purpose plug-in uninstall capability.
* new hyper-leet desktop icon on new installs of full version.
* removed Mjuice support from full version.
* tinyvis 2001 v2.04
* AVS includes experimental fullscreen overlay mode.

No links to it yet, will update once the links are available.

(from Winamp beta page)
Things coming in 2.78 (or later):
* PP's title code for in_mp3
* CDDB2 support
* Fhg VBR tag reading (hopefully)
* Vorbis plug-in

they're checking some legal issues (no idea what's wrong)

Where did you find that beta page?  Maybe I'm just missing something stupid, but I couldn't find it on winamp.com, or nullsoft.com anywhere (including the developer area).

<shrug> I was just hoping to learn some more and help out with it a bit.  I've spent a good deal of time in bugzilla for the wa3 alpha, so I figured I'd lend some time to wa2 as well.

Hopefully wa3 beta will appear soon, and I can put more work into finding problems and making sure the bugs I found have been worked out (as I've been told).

Thanks Wizard. Such posts are much more helpful than someone trying to be "r33t".
