Now, there's no way AOL would invest money on Mantis, as they don't even invest money in further development on Wasabi. They sacked some of the lead developers of Wasabi for gods sake, and now the rest of the Wasabi developers have left aswell, as has most of the Winamp developers..
I'm sad to say it, but Winamp is starting to go the way of Sonique.
Sure, miracles happen, but I'm personally not counting on it.


Edit:
Oh, and on topic, Adil sweeeet work on your newest creation!
ARE YOU SERIOUS, plague? i really didn't expect this... i thought everything is going smoothly. you mean winamp has 0 developers now?

No, he read it right, there are no Winamp developers left.

Justin left months ago, around the time 5.00 went live
Brennan & Aus got laid off.
Francis, Christophe and mig left sometime around 5.04

So that's pretty much the core developers of Winamp gone.

There are a couple of code type people left at Nullsoft, but they are more SHOUTCast orientated rather than Winamp GUI, there are one or two project dev managers left who put together the builds and what not, but again , not GUI developers.

Don't be holding your breath for any new major versions for a while, it's not called Winamp 5.05 The Final Edition (check the credits screen) for nothing you know.

I am very happy with 5.05 so there's is no problem I guess that there won't be a new version any time soon (or ever). Besides I think that winamp2 upon which 5 is built can't offer anything more (eg unicode support) and the only way that functionality can be added is through plugins. Fortunately there are many plugin creators

Plague didnt say there were 0 dev people left, and neither did you so he read it wrong.

who gives a damn about it anyway, I was already happy with 2.9
