This is to announce the release of Icecast 2.4 beta.

We've landed some important features and we're looking forward to testing and feedback.
As this is a beta release please discuss it on the icecast-dev mailing list.
(Please do NOT cross-post to both, do not reply to the icecast mailing list).

New features -

     Support for Ogg Opus streams
     Support for WebM streams


Bug fixes -

     Fixes for some race conditions
     Allow (standard strftime(3)) %x codes in <dump-file>. Disabled for win32.
     Dropped debian packaging directory as debian use their own.

There's more and significant changes in the pipe-line before the final 2.4, so stay tuned.

Notes:
The race condition fixes include one that can impact Icecast performance for setups where there are hundreds of concurrent source connections. On the other hand it prevents bad-things™ from happening in those setups.

If you used % in your dump-file names so far, this release might break that due to the newly introduced strftime support.

Cheers

Thomas B. Ruecker
