It's here :D
I love it! With nullsoft starting to charge for features of Winamp, I think that this will quickly become a new favourite of many people.

Info and download link are on the front page: Link

Looks useful...but to use this software you dont have to buy their songs do you? It can be used as a music management 'thing' cant it?

It's just a player, and no, it doesn't use WMP to play.

The main reason for it being ported was that you need it to access Apples (until today) mac only iTunes music store, which allows you to buy then download music. Before that it had just always been the macs default mp3 player.
Well now we get to play too :D

Oh that. Yeah, that's an OS X thing rather than an app thing though, I'm sure you can acheive that effect with one of the stardock products (and possibly some other free alternatives)

Ah, you mean the Genie effect. That's actually part of OS X and not iTunes. You can't accomplish the same effect in Windows without the use of third-party software like Stardock's WindowFX.

It doesn't need one.
Pausing stops active de-coding/streaming of a file therefore it's using no more resources than if it was in a stopped state :)

yeah, but it doesn't reset to the beginning of the track like a stop button does.

I know I'm being picky. I just find it strange.

Ok, just downloaded and installed...and I have to say, I'm very impressed. :)
I've been comparing sound quality between WMP9 with the DFX plugin enabled, and iTunes with the built-in Sound Enhancer turned on, and the sound quality is the same, if not better, in iTunes, even though it isn't using any external plugins.
It's also nice to see the built-in mp3, AAC, WAV and AIFF encoders.
I think I'm going to finally switch over from WMP9.
