i use 2.75 mainly because i have lots of plugins that i have used since 2.xx came out and they apparently wont be compatible with 3.xx.:(
screw plugins, is it good or not...
i wont try 3.xx until the final release version - then i'll know.;)
Same I won't try a program which on beta version...........
1) It's alpha, not beta.
2) It's quite usable, and decently stable, but it lacks implemented features, as it is a complete rewrite.
3) Best to stick with 2.xx if you want ID3 editing and such, should try WA3 when it hits the high-alphas, or beta...
If I had to guess, ~3 months before it hits beta...
hmm, i don't take any chances so i'll stick to the 2.xx
Mmm... I running a beta BIOS (PC), beta graphics card drivers, beta DVD player firmware on an overclocked machine. Oh dear! ;)
alpha != beta

Stop forgetting that.
>screw plugins, is it good or not...
It plays MP3s fairly well, but in its current state the playlist is simply horrible. Of course, given that it's just an alpha version I suppose that's to be expected. This version's launch speed seems to be quite a bit greater, I've noticed.

As a number of people on the DeviantArt comment board have pointed out, you have to wonder just what reason there is for 3.x to even exist, as the 2.x series provides just about any capability you'd like for MP3 playback and functions it doesn't provide can be provided by plugins.
