For all of those that did not yet find good replacement, QMC2 is currently best choice, supporting all new features.

If I can figure out how to get newui back into my private build, I may release it from time to time. It's also more stable than the official build for some reason.

Are the u3 Windows binaries (mess0143u3b.zip) still compiled with GCC 4.4.7?

I ask because the cdmono1 driver crashed on WinXP 32-bit.
