yep, it's in there...you give it a master server ip and port and the relay
functionality will connect to the master server and relay all connected

this is not in there.

yep, Michael added that a bit ago...Shoutcast style streaming titles (or
any streaming titles for that matter) is not supported however. You will
now need to provide a Content-type which indicates what kind of stream you
are sending in the source client code.
<p>>which of these are going to be in the upcoming beta?

tream metadata for MP3 isn't there, and the metadata for vorbis streams is
handled in the same way metadata is handled for vorbis files (they are part
of the vorbis comment block) Icecast2 doesn't currently support any kind
of metadata updates via a web request (like Shoutcast/Icecast)
additionally, the icecast2 beta will support :
- XSLT (for presenting stats.xml in a HTML friendly format - i.e. a status
- Generic file/HTML serving
