Transitioning from Winamp 2 and venturing into the new world of modern skinning with Winamp 3+!

  • Purpose of this tutorial
    • Basically a quick start for Winamp 2 Pros.
    • Explain how the skinning process fundamentally changed from Winamp 2.
    • Difference in the engine and philosophy.
    • Highlighting the key areas to consider and emphasizing the new dynamic nature of the player.
  • Wish list for this tutorial
    • Include/Link to: an overview of new components with the new Winamp 3. Doing a comprehensive list of all the Components (top to bottom) would be helpful.
    • A definition/glossary of all the components along with a detailed outline of the functionality of each component would also come in handy. Perhaps a FAQ. An example would be a definition of what the "Thinger" is and what its functionality is and maybe even to go so far as to what its limitations are.
