If anyone is interested in the change log:

* Fixed WavPack playback over HTTP.
* Fixed weird shell extension behaviors with the "folder context menus" option active.
* Fixed weird behaviors of the "stop after current" option.
* Worked-around problems with dodgy Ogg streams produced by speexenc.

Can anyone tell me what the big deal about fubar is? I've been a Media Monkey user for awhile and just decided to try it out. It seems ok so far, but lacking in options.

Every media-player as well as any other type of software has its fan-base. For foobar it's because it's lightweight and to the point. As you've guessed, I'm a Foobar user because it's very configurable. You want a pop-up when a song changes, enable it. Don't like it? Download a plug-in which suits your needs. Almost every aspect can be changed to your liking and I appreciate that. Not to start a flame war, but Foobar doesn't sound better and it isn't better than let's say Winamp or MediaMonkey. It's all about a different approach to being a music player. And that's the beauty of so many great and free media players out there, don't like one? Download and try another.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll have to check out the plugins for it. They seem to make or break a lot of programs, like Firefox. if Firefox had no plugins, I wouldn't be using it.
