> Hi once again!
> Merry whatever doesn't offend you!
> I've taken the time to set up a clean automated build of Icecast for
> Windows. This is on the Open Build Service instance of the OpenSUSE
> folks. It is now building against a clean and up to date MinGW32
> environment, maintained as part of openSUSE.
> This needed some fixes to our code to build properly. Erik van
> Pienbroek, of the Fedora project, was of invaluable help and spent some
> hours cleaning up our MinGW32 specific code.
> The last two days I've spent hours building on top of the great ground
> work for a new Windows installer started by our Stephan Jauernick.
> Utilizing the Nullsoft Installer framework we're able to create Windows
> installers also from our Linux build environment.
> I've chosen to redo the Windows release of Icecast 2.4.1, as the
> original one for Windows was just the provisional Zip file. Also we're
> not going to have a new stable release for the next couple of months, so
> I want our Windows users to have a nice installation experience without
> the need to wait long. (Spoiler: There will be a beta release during the
> next few days though.)
> Without further ado, here's the Windows installer:
> http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/icecast/icecast_win32_2.4.1.exe
> Notes:
> - Not usable to upgrade older versions, you MUST back up your config XML
> and uninstall any old versions before installing this version. If you
> used the Zip file 2.4.0/2.4.1 builds, please don't try to install into
> such a directory but delete it first, only retaining the config XML.
> - Will install cleanly over itself and not overwrite existing config.
> - Properly registers with the Windows software management infrastructure.
> - Start menu contains items for: starting server (console window MUST
> stay open), web interface and documentation.
> - Supports HTTPS aka "SSL" (TLSv1 and up, really), see documentation for
> details.
> Things still on my ToDo list for future releases:
> - Windows service installation (there is a workaround utilizing "nssm"
> though)
> - Uninstall option to purge also config and web files, currently
> retained to enable easy reinstallation
> I've done some installation and runtime testing including HTTPS and
> didn't notice any problems. Actually I'm listening to a stream right now
> over HTTPS. If there are any issues, please let me know if you run into
> problems.
> Cheers
> Thomas
> PS: The 2.4.1 zip file is now deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore!
> Website will update shortly.
