Now Available: Winamp 5.531

I know I’m running a little behind on this, but I still wanted to make sure everyone heard the news. On April 11, 2008, the latest version of the popular Winamp media player (v5.531) was released and it is now available for download. I’m sure all of you avid Winamp users out there have been using it for the last few days, but just in case you didn’t know, now you do! And as with every new release, this one comes with a couple new features and several issues have been fixed. Let’s take a look!

In order for you to fully understand what has changed in the 5.531 version, I’m going to list the fixes that were posted right on the Winamp Web site. All of these issues were fixed: Bento browser redirecting some URLs to the Winamp Search, Bento collapse/expand button bug, recent URLs not saving, total time display of selected tracks in the Classic playlist, AOL radio skipping/buffer issue, right click Play/Enqueue all items in three pane views and broken right click context menu items. Wow, that’s a lot, huh?!

Now, if you use Winamp on a regular basis, you probably noticed that a 5.53 version was released just a few days before v5.531 came out. So, why were two different versions released so close together? Well, the Winamp team actually found quite a few bugs in the 5.53 version and they wanted to clear those up as fast as possible. Hence version 5.531. You definitely can’t say they’re not looking out for you! If you’d like to download Winamp 5.531, you can do so right here. Note: Winamp’s Web site says v5.53, but it is the new version, so don’t think you’re getting the wrong thing. Now, go on and enjoy your new Winamp player. I know I already am!
