Ok folks, we are getting ready for version 2.3 of icecast and have built an
RC1 distribution. We encourage everyone to try out this new release and
provide us feedback. Please report all bugs to http://bugs.xiph.org
Here are the details :
# Streaming support for ogg speex, ogg flac, ogg midi
# intro file support - per mount settable
# on-demand relays, global and per-relay settable
# fallback to file, extends on the intro file handling.
# new mount-level settings
1. public, type/subtype, genre settings, stream description,
2. stream url, stream name, bitrate (override what is sent from the
3. mp3 metadata interval
4. on-[dis]connect scripts can be stated per-mount, invoked at source
start/stop and take 1 arg which is the mountpoint.
# New URL listener authenticator .included is an example php-based
application that can be used in conjunction with the url authenticator to
manage a simple subscription-based broadcast.
# HTPasswd authenticator uses in-memory structures now.
# On demand files now can be fed through an authenticator
# Update to admin/web xslt interface
# real/helix works
# win32 access log correct

Note that we with regard to the new URL authenticator, we will be providing
a demonstration application which can be used to manage a basic
subscription-based offering. This application is not included in the RC,
but will be included in the official release (or if we do another RC it
will be included in that)...
