Thank you all for you support and feedback! :D

What about a little history since WCC is one year old!

Alpha Zero (Feb 2005):

- I'm testing it for the first time

- Cover resizing without bicubic filter

Alpha 1 to 9 (Feb to Mar 2005)

- Althought released as an Alpha program a FileForum user said it was the worst program ever :)

- During Alpha stage several options were added and a real simple skin support implemented

- Cover resize with bicubic filter

- Case just a gif image (no transparency)

Beta 1 to 11 (Apr to Dec 2005)

- PNG support for case an notifier

- Added new options

- Better skin support

- Some users still like Beta 10 due some radical changes in RC 1! :)

RC 1 to 2 (Feb to Mar 2006)

- PNG used as font

RC 3 (Apr 2006)

- Lots of new features that you're testing right now! :D

@tehloxely: just to simplify the interface; "Stop" was also removed from the context menu for the same reason; real buttons (like the ones in the alpha version) can be added in a skin (just a design matter); improved support for real buttons plus animation are planned.

great- webradio with no problems, im just wondering- although i have the webradio.png when i listen to aol xm- the no cover png appears, well asides from that- no crashes or problems at all.. tnx a lot!!!

Right now WCC looks for two link types ("http://" and "mms://") in order to show the web image.

Let me know how's the AOL link looks like so I can add it too.

Great work as always. I really enjoy this app and finaly have covers downloaded for nearly all of the hundreds of albums in my MP3 collection.

The Winamp starter plugin still doesn't work for me though (v2.90). When enabled, it clears my playlist on start and I have three items, CD, CD, and Case.

[edit]One more nitpick. it looks like the fade effect now affects the skin as well as the cover art... was better when it just faded the cover and the 'case' remained constant.[/edit]

Mr. B

One of the WCC requirements is Winamp 5. I can't do nothing about the plugin since one of the dll is a third party module.

WCC displays the case and cover as one image only, that's why the fade was changed.
