Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #13286 (October 21st 2022) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #7236 (March 11th 2021) (x86 only)


NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

This just popped up on my news feed. I don't know if it will be anywhere near the greatness WACUP offers.

Probably not especially as they've done as I thought they would based on the recent techcrunch article with winamp 5.8 noted as the last 'official' windows release (am more surprised they actually did this & now the internet will freak out 🙄).

The difference between what's been released and the leaky build is also underwhelming (feels like a rush job to tick a box somewhere tbh) but matches with what the techcrunch interview implied. Plus one of the WACUP beta testers noted that it's still the 'beta' installer so that doesn't instil confidence & I'll stick with my WACUP build thankyouverymuch, heh.
