It may take some time, but after four years there is a new version of Winamp

After more than four years of development, the reborn Winamp returns to the land of media with version 5.9 candidate. After version 5.666 (December 2013) no new versions of the software were published, especially since version 5.8 from 2018 was not an official update.

Version 5.9 RC1 Build 9999 is now Available at Nullsoft, but still comes with a long list of known issues. So it’s no wonder that a second candidate for his release undoubtedly followed suit. In any case, an important step is now being taken towards a modern Winamp media player.

However, there were many obstacles hindering the team. The changelog says the following about this: “This is the culmination of four years of work since the release of 5.8. Two development teams and an epidemiological gap between them.”
