    Appears you can get hold of the leaked version of it from that site too.

    The library is completely different, I actually quite like it.

    What is it with people seeing a new version of a Microsoft program and thinking that because the UI has been updated that it's just a skin? It's happened with Vista and Office 11, and now it's happening with Windows Media Player.

    I'm using it now - I love the new library, makes things much easier to find with album art and grouping by artist etc. The new black front also looks very sleek.

    Only minor problem I had is that when I tried using it with Salling Clicker, it took a while to display updated info on my phone, and was a bit slow at the PC end too.

    Its not a great issue though because I usually use Itunes for remote control, which works fine, but it would have been nice to try out the new MP.

    If anyone wants any more screenshots, I can post some. :)

    Maybe because with this media player, the interface is just the same..
