Winamp veröffentlicht eine neue Version

Nach vier Jahren Entwicklungszeit wurde vor ein paar Tagen eine neue Winamp Version veröffentlicht. „Totgeglaubte“ und so. Früher _der_ Mediaplayer meiner Wahl, heute für mich absolut nicht nötig. Ob das wirklich wer aus pragmatischen und weniger der Nostalgie wegen nutzt? Keine Ahnung.

Last week, Winamp 5.9 RC1 Build 9999 was released, marking it as the first version released in 4 years and as the first release candidate of the revitalized media player.

While the Winamp release candidate does not contain too many changes, the main goal of this release was to upgrade the code base from Visual Studio 2008 to Visual Studio 2019. Now that this has been completed, the team can add new features and capabilities to the media player.

A byproduct of these changes is that Winamp requires Windows 7 SP1 or later, dropping support for Windows XP and Vista, which have long been out of support.

„This is the culmination of 4 years‘ work since the 5.8 release. Two dev teams, and a pandemic-induced hiatus period inbetween,“ reads the changelog for Winamp 5.9 RC1 Build 9999.

„To the end-user, it might not seem like there’s a whole heap of changes, but the largest and hardest part was actually migrating the entire project from VS2008 to VS2019 and getting it all to build successfully.

„The groundwork has now been laid, and now we can concentrate more on features. Whether fixing/replacing old ones or adding new.“
