Yeah I'm looking forward to this one, and curious to see since it is a version released after Justin Frankel left.

Just like the Nuke button in Lemmings...."Oh no!!"

It's not up on the servers yet.

AAC ripping is there since 5.00, MP4 ripping is there since 5.02 actually. But they made MP4 ripping the default one now (before it was AAC ripping - raw AAC tagged with IDv2 and therefore not a wise choice).

Now it is possible to encode within winamp using the presets. Before that was not possible within the LAME Dll. 
But only Pro users will benefit from it, since MP3 encoding is a Pro feature (due to the licencing costs).

Amano, you spoke a bit too soon.

According to Christophe and several other guys I heard from, the release date for 5.03 is next Tuesday. An internal release candidate was being tested about 2-3 days ago. This upgrade's been in "about-to-be-released" status for a little over a week now.

Sorry Peter, I didn't think so far.  The next time I will do so.
Maybe just make another news submission and refer to this thread for the discussion.

Details:

Christophe told in the Winamp forums, that the new in_wma isn't hardcoded to in_wave anymore.

The full changelog:

Winamp 5.03:
* made MP4 AAC the new default ripping encoder
* fixed a crash bug when playing some AVI files in in_dshow
* added multimedia keyboard keys in global hotkeys default configuration
* added "Manual playlist advance" in Repeat button popup menu in Classic mode
* improvements in MP3 encoder configuration (added --alt-preset standard, etc...)
* made the tabs in the preferences XP correctly themed under Windows XP
* revamped the Media Library preferences a bit
* new experimental WMA9 input plugin
* gen_jumpex updates from DrO
* added "Nuke library" action in Media Library
* more upside down videos fixes
* fixed crash if a plugin generated a pledit wm_windowposchanged on shutdown
* fixed crash exploit in in_mod (thanks Peter Winter-Smith)
* fixed various crashes in in_midi when playing invalid files
* made in_midi store its settings in winamp.ini instead of the registry
* fixed error during installation on computers with chinese/oriental regional settings
* removed AOD from installer

  - added appplication desktop toolbars capabilities for layouts, add
      appbar="left|top|right|bottom" to use them

  - current skin version number is 1.2 (this should not change for a long while now, and
    of course we continue to support 0.8 to 1.1)

    script then use 'x' to continue and 'i' to trace into)

  - fixed hilited state not on after clicking on buttons while the mouse stays in area

  - fixed image cache problem when using the same bitmap as a map and a button image
    parameter

Well, I meant posting a new thread with changelog in second entry. Your choice, I can still swap news if you post another thread. Or split this one.

EDIT: Just saw that it hit the portal site this way. Sorry again Peter for having such dumb forum members.

@Menno: I don't know if there is a bug in the Winamp AAC decoder. You would be the best man to have a look and to report back

I would like something to know : Does 5.03 support the multimedia keys from Microsoft's Wireless Optical Desktop Elite, with modern skin enabled and when its minimized (tray) ??

What does that mean?  An exploit customarily has referred to malware taking advantage of a weakness or opening in code ...

Don't forget the Pro version

http://download.nullsoft.com/winamp/client/winamp503_pro.exe

Ben

How come it let me download the Pro version with that link?  Don't you have to pay for it?  Or will it prompt a registration code if one bothers to install it (I won't bother to install it as I'm not interested in Winamp anymore).

I downloaded and installed 5.03. Here's my take on the good and the bad in Winamp.

Good:

1. Media Library: The Winamp Media Library is the easiest way to organise your music.

Bad:

1. No tabbed playlists: I wish you could enqueue into a different playlist everytime you enqueue things from the media library.

2. No native ReplayGain support: There are plugins from what I know of but I wish they could support it natively. Also see point 3 below.

3. No APEv2 support.

Hope that helps anyone who's trying to decide whether to install it or not.
