1.  Icecast 1.x is no longer being developed excepting for security patches
and bug-fixes.  Acordingly, it's probably also fair to say that it's not
really being supported, since basically, the developers have other fish to
fry.  There is, of course, a decent sized user base, which I'm guessing
would make up the majority of this list.

2.  Shout has not been supported for some time and the developers (and many
users) are up-front about this.

3.  Ices (currently at 0.2.3) is still being developed by Brendan Cully
<SP?>.  IIRC, he's generally quick to respond to queries directly about

4.  Icecast2/libshout2/ices2 are under active development at this time.
The developers are at least keeping an eye on icecast-dev, as patches are
being committed.  Keep in mind however that the guys doing this are also
heavily involved in Vorbis' development which is likely taking up a good
deal of time right now.

Speaking as a person who's dabbled with icecast 1.x but not done a great
deal with it, the manual seems fairly thorough in documenting features,
etc.  However, it would seem that a FAQ for this list would be a good thing
as a number of questions seem to come up at regular intervals.
