After many years of development and testing, icecast has finally moved to 
2.0.0.

What's new in 2.0 ?

   * completely rewritten codebase from 1.x - highly efficient and low 
memory usage.
   * addition of new media types (Ogg Vorbis) and a framework to add new 
ones easier. Icecast still supports MP3 streaming as well  including 
shoutcast-style metadata)
   * a web-based administration interface
   * supports listing in stream directories
   * new relay system
   * stability - icecast 2.0.0 has been tested extremely thoroughly.
   * many other features!

Additionally, for the occasion we have done a rewrite of the icecast.org 
website and have new features on tap for both icecast and the website.

We would like to personally thank anyone who has contributed so far to the 
development and testing of icecast, without such a cooperative effort, we 
would never have gotten this far..
