Winamp 5.091 Final out

Winamp is a skinnable, multi-format audio player made by Nullsoft. It is freeware. Winamp was first released by Justin Frankel in 1997. Originally, MP3 playback was based on the AMP decoding engine by Tomislav Uzelac et al. In later versions, this was replaced with Nitrane, a proprietary decoder created by Nullsoft and subject of a lawsuit from Playmedia Systems, Ltd. After an out of court settlement and licensing agreement, Nullsoft switched to an ISO decoder from Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, the developers of MP3.

Earlier this week Nullsoft released v5.0.9.1 of Winamp to their forums only to have it pulled a few hours later. The reason behind the pullback was reported to be legal. However, the final version is now out available for download. Here is the changelog from the Winamp forum…
