A new release of the popular Quinto Black CT skin for the good old Winamp player is available. Version 2.5 features a separate CD Coverflow window background image.
Winamp is one of the most popular media players available for Windows. It's also one of the oldest ones. From my personal experience, it is one of the most versatile and feature-rich media players, has an enormous variety of plugins and skins available and is stable enough for every day use.
Winamp still has plenty of users. Many people continue to create nice skins for this classic media player. One of them is PeterK, who is the author of the popular Quinto Black CT skin. Quinto Black CT v2.5 comes with the following change log:
- added: "Add Own Background" feature to CD Coverflow
- added: Vinyl Record
- fixed: Light Reflection (Opacity) -> CD case -> 80 %/60 %/40% - did not work due to wrong container name in the script file
- changed: got rid of "state off" for album covers - they do not get dimmed anymore
- changed: default color theme from "Wheat" to "Light Cyan"
- changed: size of small displays from 19 pixel height to 26 on main windows: Playlist Editor, Media Library, Video and Visualizations

According to the author, the future of the skin now depends on Radionomy and what they are going to do with Winamp. We will all see it in 2019.
