WACUP Update & Patreon

Hello again, it’s been a while since the last blog post and even longer since the last regular blog post updates. I apologise now for this but I’ve been busier coding which isn’t a valid excuse and I know I need to get back into the habit of doing the weekly(ish) blog updates.

So if you’ve not been following me elsewhere & / or via the changelogs then you may not think much has been going on but you are wrong as there’s been 12 beta builds provided since the start of 2017 (not counting some of the interim builds before the main builds were released to all of the beta testers). I won’t recap all of those changelogs here but suffice to say a lot of work has been going on (not as much as I’d like at times) but things are progressing (unlike any official progress from what was recently indicated).

Happy 20th Birthday Winamp

Yes you’ve read the title correctly, today April 21st 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of when WinAMP 0.20a was first released as freeware to the world! If you’ve never seen it then that first version looks a lot different to what most people think off when Winamp is mentioned but everything has to start somewhere and that’s how Winamp started Winamp_0.2a.jpg

Blog Updates To Resume Next Week (w/c 21st Nov)

As some may have noticed there hasn’t been a blog post update for a few weeks which is all down to me being focused on fixing issues raised by those who’ve been doing beta testing (*) of the first two builds of WACUP over on the Community Forum.

So until blog post updates resume (which may be done in a slightly different style as well as day since I seem to be doing Friday beta build releases), you can follow some of the development, etc that is going on via Twitter, Facebook or on the Community Forum.

(*) You can still sign-up (or suggest to friends you know who might be interested) to help out beta testing by creating a community forum account and following the instructions during account registration.

Community Forum & Facebook Page Now Available

Want to help beta test my up-coming independent #winamp update project ?

You can now sign-up to be a beta tester in the community forum (links to this will be made more obvious over the rest of the site in the coming hours).

This is provided for everything relating to beta testing the up-coming WACUP betas (remember this is a completely independent project with no affiliation to Winamp or it’s owners) but it’s also open to general discussions about WACUP, Winamp and related tech in general.


Also for those who may prefer to keep a track of things via Facebook instead of trying to look at this blog for updates, there is now a Facebook page available which will mirror the content found here but may also provide a bit about what’s going on in-between the main blog updates.
