I woke up this morning to find out that Icecast 2.3.1 running under Ubuntu 
Feisty had crashed or otherwise terminated.  I don't know why, but I've got 
a theory.

I'm currently trying to get a streamer working properly.  At times it goes 
into a state when it connects very briefly then disconnects again.  This of 
course generates a lot of connects and disconnects and may have overloaded 
some stats value.

When I went to investigate this possibility however, not only did I not 
understand much of the code, but I also noticed that Icecast 2.3.1 is 
nearly 2 years old and that there have been numerous bugfixes committed to 
SVN since then.  So perhaps whatever caused the crash has been fixed 

Are there any plans to release a new version anytime soon?

Sorry I can't be more specific about the termination, there was nothing 
helpful in the logs and nothing else I could find anywhere.
