News Burst: Nullsoft releases guilt-free Winamp

Nullsoft has released version 2.5 of Winamp, one of the world's most popular MP3 players, as freeware. Previous versions were released as shareware, with a $10 registration fee.

In addition to the usual array of bug fixes, new features include skin selection in the main menu and added streamed file saving to in_mp3.dll, although this feature will not work with Shoutcast. A recent stream list has been added to the open location box and there is now full automatic Internet Explorer integration for Shoutcast.
