No, Icecast is under active development and currently the stable version 
is 2.3.3 and there is a beta version of 2.4 (among other things webm and 
opus support). KH is a whole different story and you can't simply compare.

KH has a significantly different code-base than main-line Icecast. It 
also has some very interesting features, but sadly no contributions from 
there to main-line.
 From my personal opinion point of view it's a choice between a lot of 
features, less stability and very stable and less but solid features.

> 3) There was a kh-ads build at some point. Did that later become the Ando Targeted Ad Injector? Did the ads build continue to be developed?

No idea, you'd need to ask Karl that question. KH is his thing and he 
should know.
