Classic skins: If Winamp was closed in minimized state, Playlist (and video) windows are maximized on reopening Winamp.

-More Soon!

note: not all confirmed bugs from the reports thread have been added here,
mainly because they have already been fixed in latest internal build.

Things what not to report:

1) Anything to do with internationalization / fonts / unicode (all known)

Not Bugs

1) Any features missing from Winamp3.
Winamp 5 is built on the Winamp 2.x Win32 engine, not Winamp3.
Winamp3 was a separate product/player built from scratch on the wasabi engine.
Unlike Winamp3, Winamp 5 upgrades and overwrites Winamp 2.x

2) Some wsz & wal skins look different than they did in Winamp 2.x & Winamp3

3) Some 3rd-party general/input plugins mess up the main menus

4) Anything else caused by any 3rd-party plugin (some might need updating).

5) Winamp3 components aren't recognized (WAC is not supported by Winamp)

6) Multimedia Keyboards. Contact the Company once Winamp 5.0 is complete so they can provide you with updated drivers.
