WinAmp 5.01

WinAmp 5.01 is out now. It includes the following updates since 5.00 was released

* fixed gen_ml selection bug
* added gen_ml option for no guessing at all
* made AVS and SPS support loop() in user code
* made AVS support megabuf() in user code
* made pro installer not prompt for regkey if already valid
* improved font directory retrieval in gen_ff
* added content rating system in Internet TV's listing
* added bandwidth usage statistic in Internet Radio/TV listings
* made media library guess from filename only when NO metadata found
* added seperate recent items tracking options for files/streams
* made installer better handle installing wa5 directly over wa3.
* added milkdrop docs to installer
* made uninstaller not remove winamp directory if not empty (user is
now required to do so manually to avoid people going "oops")
* made installer check sonic px.dll versions and prompt for reboot
accordingly
* fixed nsv metadata querying bugs
* fixed gen_ml guessing bugs for files with metadata that are not in DB

I decided to upgrade but nothing major to worry about.

  2. What it means is that it is better and more stable than before. Nullsoft are a company known for countless updated releases of a single product. There must have been near 50 versions of winamp 2.xx
