I cannot imagine there will be any patches/changes to the current winamp version at all until the new winamp comes out sometime next year where there will be add-on overhaul of all the disbanded features including this one.

I imagine that free providers is going to be the way forward. So realistically we have Musicbrainz or freedb options for the open source world. Possibly something like discogs (the most extensive out there but not like to the CD id) but that is private but publicly accessible so not sure how that would work with their api.

Musicbrainz has the most functionality (music fingerprinting, CD id's, it's own artist and release id's that are used all over the place.) so that makes most sense to use. And likely, if you read this thread, something that will be used, others may be used as some sort of backup/alternative sources.
