CD Art Display 1.0 (24Aug2007)

CD Art Display is a skinnable application that shows the now playing song cover on your desktop. It's an addon that fully works with AlbumPlayer, Helium Music Manager, iTunes, Winamp, Windows Media Player, MediaMonkey and partially supports qmp, MP3Toys, musikCube and foobar2000 (Winamp API Emulator plugin).

History note

The first CD Art Display alpha was released in 25Feb2005. It was just for Winamp and that's why it was named Winamp CD Case (WCC) back then. The case was just a bmp file and folder.jpg was the only option for a local cover.

After more than 2 years CD Art Display 1.0 is a bit better, stable and supports more players.

That's all. Today, 24Aug2007, is the official CD Art Display 1.0 release!! :)
