Winamp 5.5 is released

A while back I did a small preview of the then upcoming Winamp 5.5 which featured the completely new “Bento” skin which brought a lot of innovations to the player, but not really to the whole media player scene.

Not much has changed since that preview, except for perhaps it’s stability. But what I said then remains true now:

they should have taken the opportunity to give their media library a much needed revamp.

The “new” Media Library has a few new sections but fails to fix any of the issues that made most Winamp users prefer to use the classic interface. The classic interface was well known and popular for it’s simplicity and low resource consumption. Simplicity, and low consumption of resources, are definitely things that the new Bento interface lacks.

Still, if you’re interested in trying out the player nonetheless, you can download it from Winamp’s homepage.
