What is WACUP?

WACUP stands for Winamp Community Update Pack. It is the brainchild of former Winamp employee DrO who is dedicated to continuing patches and plugin development for Winamp. Like us DrO believes Winamp is far from dead and still has lots of potential. From his dedicated website you can get new features and bug fixes for your patched Winamp 5.666 from those who care about keeping Winamp alive and whipping.

The Winamp Community Update Pack (WACUP) is currently under development and is being designed to work only with the patched Winamp 5.666 release as a way to provide bug fixes for it as well as updates for existing features and most importantly, new features for Winamp.

WACUP will consist of new plug-ins to add additional features to Winamp as well as replacement plug-ins to provide better implementations of some of the plug-ins natively included with Winamp (which is one of the benefits of Winamp being heavily based on a plug-in system). There will also be a loader program which will be used to then load the original Winamp program and which will allow for some of the more complex new features to be added.

He also has a blog to keep you up to date on how things are progressing.
