NullSoft propose une mise à jour mineure de son célèbre lecteur multimédia, j'ai nommé Winamp.

Il s'agit de la toute nouvelle version notée 5.02.

Pour rappel, Winamp est un lecteur qui supporte un grand nombre de formats audio (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, WMA,..). Il possède la la vitesse d'éxecution de feu la version 2.x ainsi que la gestion évoluée des skins de la version 3.x.

Winamp est disponible en deux versions, une gratuite et l'autre dite Pro qui est payante.
Les différences entre ces deux versions sont décrites plus en détail ici.

Remarque, dans les versions gratuites on peut distinguer la version Lite de la version Full, plus d'informations .
Les deux étant gratuites je vous conseille de récupérer la version Full.

Il existe également un patch non officiel permettant de traduire ce programme en français, mais il est pour le moment uniquement disponible pour la version 5.01.
