This sounds like old-stable, so you won't find any backports.
You'll have two choices:
- Rebuild the source package (once 2.4.1 hits SID)
- Install the binary package that I maintain for Icecast.org on OBS
(once I release 2.4.1 there)
Both will probably be mentioned here on the list.

No, that shouldn't be necessary. Backing those up won't hurt, but if you
use a deb package then things should be taken care of automagically.

We are not aware of any issues with liquidsoap.

Unrelated to liquidsoap, if you use mountpoint credentials to update
metadata for a stream, but are on a different IP than the connected
source client, that will fail.
