Good evening,

at the Icecast Project we are pleased to have released the new version
2.4.6 of libshout.

libshout is a library providing a simple interface to send streams to
streaming servers including Icecast.

This new release includes a number of updates:
 * Added support for plain text streaming
 * Fixed pkg-config file (#2329)
 * Made vorbis an optional codec
 * Do not pass to small headers to libspeex
 * Updated documentation, mostly in regard of making it clearer which
   functions are now obsoleted
 * General code cleanup
 * Added compiler warnings about obsoleted functions and ignored return
 * Replaced old shout_set_metadata() with new shout_set_metadata_utf8()
 * Fixed shout_set_metadata*() sometimes returning SHOUTERR_RETRY
 * Workaround old clients by emulating SHOUTERR_RETRY with
   SHOUTERR_BUSY (#2316)
 * Remove our re-implementation of X509_check_host()
 * Allow to disable building tools (#2331)

If you are a downstream maintainer we would like to kindly ask
considering updating packages.
