I did modify my ices.conf when I made the upgrade.
Here's my ices.conf in full:
<!-- This is the filename used as a playlist when using the builtin
playlist handler. -->
<!-- Set this to 0 if you don't want to randomize your playlist, and to
1 if you do. -->
<!-- Either builtin, perl, or python. -->
<!-- Module name to pass to the playlist handler if using perl or python.
If you use the builtin playlist handler then this is ignored -->
<!-- Set this to 1 if you want ices to launch in the background as a
<!-- Set this to 1 if you want to see more verbose output from ices -->
<!-- This directory specifies where ices should put the logfile, cue file
and pid file (if daemonizing). -->
<!-- Hostname or ip of the icecast server you want to connect to -->
<!-- Port of the same -->
<!-- Encoder password on the icecast server -->
<!-- Header protocol to use when communicating with the server.
Use xaudiocast for icecast, or icy for shoutcast compatibility -->
<!-- The name of the mountpoint on the icecast server -->
<!-- The name of the dumpfile on the server for your stream. DO NOT set
this unless you know what you're doing.
<!-- The name of you stream, not the name of the song! -->
<Name>Bolt Thrower's Stream</Name>
<!-- Genre of your stream, be it rock or pop or whatever -->
<!-- Longer description of your stream -->
<Description>Heavy ****** Metal!!!</Description>
<!-- URL to a page describing your stream -->
<!-- 0 if you don't want the icecast server to publish your stream on
the yp server, 1 if you do -->
<!-- Stream bitrate, used to specify bitrate if reencoding, otherwise
just used for display on yp and on the server. Try to keep it
<!-- If this is set to 1, and ices is compiled with liblame support,
ices will reencode the stream on the fly to the stream bitrate. -->
<!-- Number of channels to reencode to, 1 for mono or 2 for stereo -->
