While I wasn’t watching, Icecast released quite a bit of new stuff: libShout 2.3.1, Icecast 2.3.3 / 2.4-beta and Ices 2.0.2.

Because of a very busy project, I hadn’t watch the homepage for a while.

Well, this year they in fact did release some new versions that you’d think are purely maintenance releases but do have new stuff:

libShout 2.3.0 added WebM support, which is great, because it is a license free video format formerly known as VP-8 by On2/Google.

libShout 2.3.1 added Opus support, which is cool, because last month, IETF published it as a standard for use on the internet: RFC 6716 – Definition of the Opus Audio Codec.

Icecast 2.3.3 fixed quite a bit of security fixes, had some general bugfixes, allows for sources to be authenticated via URL (just like listeners can), and added support for VLCT playlists (that have much more meta information than M3U or PLS playlists).

(Hopefully Windows binaries get added soon).

Icecast 2.4 beta adds WebM and Opus support and a few bugfixes. Needs thorough testing though.

Ices 2.0.2 streams audio to Icecast, now supports RoarAudio and fixes a few bugs.
