Too many frequent updates!! arrrgh!

I just finished installing the latest update, having to uninstall the older winamp and today, i get a new update patch!! So now I have to uninstall and install the new winamp.

TOO MANY TOO FREQUENT!!

I'm getting tired of it. I'm just going to turn off the updater.

It really sucks that I have to uninstall winamp completely just to reinstall the new one. Why wont the update just update itself automatically???


ARGGH!!

Rant over.

dude there hasn't been an update within 2 weeks since they released the patch for the 5.55 version and also if you read in the release forum there is a download for just the patch and not the whole program so you don't have to reinstall the whole program if you don't want to

thanks rob

it's not our fault when people find and report security vulnerabilities now is it?? and excluding the 5.551 and 5.552 updates (which are the security only fixes), it's been a few months since 5.55 and was a long time before that when 5.541 was released (oh noes that was too long between updates, the player must be dead blah blah blah).

release too often people moan, don't release enough people moan, do just about anything people moan.

moving to the bitch list since that's where this generaly belongs...

Oh my. It is a great ordeal installing the latest version of Winamp. First you must go to the website, then you must download the installer, then run the installer, click next blindly, then finally wait for Winamp to run. It must take two whole minutes!

Just be glad that Winamp doesn't update every week.

oh for the good old days when you'd download a 2.x version over dialup and by the time you'd done that another version was already out... *memories*
