Winamp 5.52

It's been some time since Winamp release their Winamp player application. In my opinion, Winamp is one of the most stable application that exists on Windows platform. I never had problems with Winamp so far (unless a bloated version causing slow response when Winamp 3 comes up that rapidly replaced by Winamp 5). Since the availability of Winamp 5.5, they have introduced a new skin called Bento and in the latest version, they made some improvements on it. Here's the latest Changelog for Winamp 5.52
