This took longer than it should have.

Icecast 1.3.9 fixes all the known security problems, and also adresses
many that weren't reported, thanks to a code audit by John Viega.

If you for some reason have problems with 1.3.9 that prevent you from
using it, please, please, please make sure you don't run icecast as
root, or make sure you have patched the problem areas yourself.

Along with icecast 1.3.9, libshout 1.0.5 has been released.  There were
minor bugfixes, and one possible security fix.

These will probably be the last releases of icecast 1.3.x and libshout
1.x.  Unless of course, there are other important security fixes that
need to be addressed.

Icecast 2.0 is shaping up nicely, getting lots of input from early
testers.  By the time an alpha release of icecast is ready, all the
player plugins should support streaming well.  Right now there are still
a few lingering issues with the winamp plugin, but Freeamp, Xmms, and
Sonique seem to be doing great.
