This is to announce the release of Icecast 2.4 beta2 (aka 188.8.131.52).
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 lists, do not reply to the icecast mailing list).
New features -
Now compiles for win32 using mingw
Added options "headers" and "header_prefix" to URL based listener auth.
Updated listener_remove handler:
added ip= and agent=,
Some cleanup && made code more uniform,
avoid int for size_t vars.
close #1422 #1422
Allow full URLs to be returned by the master server. close #1878
Highly experimental HTTP PUT support. ref #1812
We are handling it the same as we would handle a SOURCE request.
Due to legacy code, sender MUST send proper content-type header,
if content type is not audio/mpeg!
Can be tested using real-time encoded output and piping it into:
| curl -u username:password -H "Content-type: application/ogg" \
-T - http://localhost:8000/mountname.ogg
Note that this example has ZERO timing, so a simple 'cat *.ogg' will fail.
Whatever feeds the pipe must do it at proper timing for real-time playback!
Send proper HTTP headers in responses to clients. close #1639, see #1870 and #1885.
corrected Content-Length: header in admin (raw) requests.
Thanks to paluh for reporting.
Escape log entries in access log (close: #1916 some fixes still pending)
For details, please refer to the ChangeLog!
There's more and significant changes in the pipe-line before the final 2.4, so stay tuned.
If you used % in your dump-file names so far, this release might break that due to the strftime support since beta1.
