It seems that Radionomy has no interest in the continued development of Winamp.

April 23, 2014: "Winamp – A new version will be available end of the year – " , signed by "The Radionomy Team".

January 6, 2016 (20 months later): no new version and no communication about Winamp.

Oh I would not rule it out now that Vivendi is a majority owner. There has been no official statement as to the demise of Winamp. I did run across this earlier today. I looks like they are actually cleaning up the code a bit and removing old libraries that were used years ago. But, don't say it is over until it is official.

I think Radionomy just doesn't know what to do with it or how to make money off it... I think Winamp was profitable before a bunch of drama involving the creator and acquisitions or investors or something caused chaos. Radionomy's blog hasn't been updated since last year:

My guess is just advertising the paid and free versions of Winamp online and fixing bugs and optimizing it for Windows 7/10 and Mac/Linux (and updating their iOS/Android apps with in-app purchases) would make it very profitable and wouldn't require a huge team; I just think big sales people and companies like AOL and the ilk want to try to "maximize" monetization and compete with Spotify and Apple Music but that's really overshooting it for Winamp users who just like to manage their own libraries and have a nice player not hooked into all these other nonsense online services and suggestions that are over-pushed into people's faces by these more well-known apps.

I'd pay for it again, I think I paid $20 for some premium features like mp3 encoding, and I might pay for some streaming services (and it would be nice to get local concert or online event notifications with links to purchase tickets), but really if they just restricted a few more advanced-user features behind a paywall and released the freemium model they'd make a killing, they don't need to be another Spotify or iHeartRadio or Pandora, just make a good music management app and implement the online features without smothering people.
