WACUP (Winamp Community Update Project) is an audio player based on Winamp. WACUP (which can be pronounced as wakeup or wac-up or however you prefer it in your native tongue) is designed to work only with the patched Winamp 5.666 release to provide bug fixes, updates of existing features and most importantly new features with the goal to eventually become it's own highly Winamp compatible media player. WACUP makes use of the benefits of Winamp being heavily based on a plug-in system so new plug-ins can add additional features as well as allowing replacements to be created which provide better implementations over the plug-ins natively included with Winamp. If none of that makes sense, a good way to think about WACUP is that it is like a video game mod where you initially use the original game but then files related to it are added to or edited in-order to provide a better experience.

Preview Version: (x86)

Released: 30 September 2023

Everything done as part of beta preview build v1.9.19.16956

Added an import folder option onto the root local library navigation tree node so it's more obvious & consistent with other menu actions
Added an option to the import folder dialog for the local library plug-in to control if the chosen folder will also be added to the Folder Monitor

Changed some of the library navigation node right-click menus to make them more consistent with the import vs export wording & groupings
Changed how visualisation & dsp plug-ins have their sub-modules enumerated to better handle plug-ins not being implementated correctly which could cause an infinite loop causing the process to crash
Changed the internal metadata cache handling to do a better job in triggering its own & any input plug-in specific file caches to be released in a more timely manner to resolve file locking problems
Changed the hooking of some of the runtime methods for the 5.666 plug-ins to hopefully resolve some of the random memory related failures
Changed the output plug-in loading to prevent out_multi.dll from being loaded until investigated / replaced as it's currently causing instant crashes when it's loaded

Fixed a crash related to the local library album art filter refreshing
Fixed the credits page showing the wrong year so it's now correctly updated based on the compile information pulled from the core dll
Fixed the version history page in the installer not following dark-mode
Fixed the discord now streaming button handling incorrectly reporting cda & zip entries as streamable links when should just be urls
Fixed the yt-dlp handling not giving an appropriate error message if the download couldn't be completed (e.g. due to server issues)
Fixed an internal lifetime issue which could cause a crash when items in the main playlist are being refreshed & changes are happening
Fixed a memory leak within the database engine inadvertently introduced in a beta build from a few months prior whilst fixing a different issue
Fixed a memory leak in not correctly handling some libopenmpt generated failures when trying to process corrupted files (leaking ~65KB / file)
Fixed a crash in the vorbis input plug-in when processing some metadata edit requests
Fixed the input plug-ins currently being queried for "playcount" when it's not provided by them (only the local library / history plug-ins) which could for some setups cause the input plug-ins to acquire a file lock when not needed as part of trying to obtain the metadata
Fixed the streaming source dsp not automatically connecting if the server type dropdown has been changed from the default & then enabling the use built-in server option
Fixed the local library plug-in not importing some of the files which have virtual filepaths when they contain multiple files within them (e.g. MOD, IT & SID)
Fixed the import folder dialog for the local library plug-in to remember it's last opened position
Fixed the load plug-in profiling handling causing a file handle to be left open throughout the process lifetime
Fixed the add folder / current playlist to menu items for some of the modern skin menus not working (ml_ll didn't know to handle them)
Fixed a compatibility issue between in_mp3 & the core visualisation api handling which could cause it to trigger a crash for some
Fixed a crash related to the metadata caching added around some of the modern skin engine plug-in calls to reduce it's overall impact
Fixed a crash on close due to the 3rd party gen_g15_ray.dll plug-in causing a messaging deadlock (this should also reduce its overhead)
Fixed a crash in the replacement modern skin script timer implementation due to an invalid timer received from the skin engine calls

Other misc small changes in relation to some of the crash reports where it's inconclusive what was going on but additional checking has been added which might help

Updated Monkey's Audio (in_ape.dll) to 10.24 (29 Sep 2023)
Updated mpg123 (mpg123.dll) to 1.32.2 (27 Sep 2023)
Updated vgmstream (in_vgmstream.dll) to the latest Git commit from 28 Sep 2023

Review by handsome on Aug 20, 2020 Version: OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 9/10

Hi. I just found out about this great project. You are doing a great job guys. One thing I noticed was the double size in classic skin mode. The resizable windows should not be double sized just like in winamp classic. It's unnecessary and it's causing weird behavior (windows not docking properly, disappearing borders, items on playlist not loading titles, etc.). For example in the playlist, I usually just resize it and increase the font size.
I only use classic mode though.

Anyway, keep it up and thank you!
