New features in Winamp 5 include support for classic Winamp 1.x/2.x/2.9x skins and Winamp 3 (Modern) skins; a fancy new Modern skin; the same classic skin for people who want the Winamp 2 feel; a vastly more powerful media library; CD-ripping support (AAC@2x in the Free version, MP3 at unlimited speeds in the Pro version); CD-burning support (limited to 2x in the free version); advanced title-formatting logic for file types that support it; huge AVS updates; support for playback of AAC and VP6 in NSV files/streams; global hot-key support; a new Signal Processing Studio DSP plug-in; options for disabling plug-in exception-handling for developers; a new Winamp icon; and the addition of XP manifest.xml to winamp.exe. The developer made the agent icon use the configured Winamp system tray icon, made the program faster, made Winamp’s internal submenu management more reliable, added skin-font-override preferences, and added a spacebar that shows the current playlist.
