Winamp - hot off the press (Arstechnica)
« on: July 04, 2017, 01:13:28 PM »
Winamp makes it to the frontpage of Arstechnica but they left out the fact WACUP exists. I have messaged the author of the article.

It would be nice to get more visibility for the next generation of users and the 'old' :)

That seems very much like a re-posting of the original article from a few years back (2013 time-scale iirc).

Winamp is not dead to me
Proof : http://vincent-lecomte.blogspot.be/2017/05/multimedia-winamp-community-update-pack.html
Winamp is part of the "family", since Windows 98... I'm now 28 and I'm still using it on my Windows 10 desktop.

By the way I asked to become a beta tester but I still don't get access to the downloads :-)

Please see https://getwacup.com/community/index.php/topic,78.0.html for the general process of being accepted (i've set it as a sticky thread now so it's simpler to find). Basically when the next beta build is released to testers then pending requests will be added - normally that's only up to a 2 weeks wait but things have been odd for the last two months (ill health & things taking a while to resolve) which means I'm behind on a new beta build being made available (but there should be a new one by the end of this month).
