"Yesterday Nullsoft officially moved Winamp from alpha
to beta with the release of Winamp 3.0 Beta 1. Nullsoft has also
released Winamp 3.0, Alpha 1 for Linux. Built on a new coding
platform named "Wasabi", Winamp 3 offers a module setup allowing
any component of Winamp to be removed or replaced. This allows
third party developers more freedom to customize the program.
"Winamp 3.0 takes customization to a completely new level," said

near complete freedom in their ability to create and customize
Steve Gedikian dropped a hint on the company website a few days
earlier suggesting this release was coming. "We've been working
incessantly on Winamp3 and when it's ready; damn it's going to be
cool" wrote Gedikian."
