First off, this is my first post on here and I haven't looked into the source much yet, so I am not sure which category to assign this to. Sorry :/

Upon upgrading Audacious to 4.0.2, I've noticed that the player (I use the classic Winamp skin) would not stay on top anymore like it did before. I blamed this on the configuration reset during the upgrade (as the player came up with the modern skin at first) but I could not find the option to enable stay on top anywhere.

And sure enough after rolling back to 3.10.1, the option is back where it should be in Right click > View > Always on Top.

Could you please re-implement this feature into 4.0.2, or give insight as to why this option was removed?

Best regards

The Qt port of the Winamp Classic interface is missing several features still. As mentioned in the release notes, you can continue to use the GTK2 version for now.

Depending on what window-manager you're using, you may be able to custom-set this there.

@John: Please check the attached patch. I didn't bother about supporting older Qt releases, since 5.9 was released in 2017 already.

Looks good to me.

I went ahead and pushed this to both master and 4.0.x. I also made a slight change to remove the Qt 5.9 requirement (though I haven't actually tested with and older version either).
