icecast 1.1 released

“… from recent tests, icecast has proven to be the most
fully featured, robust, and efficient of the mp3 audio streaming
servers.”

“We’re pretty excited by this release, because we’ve finally
pulled ahead (in comparison to shoutcast),” said developer Barath Raghavan.

About icecast:

icecast is a Mpeg Layer III (mp3) audio streaming server
licensed under the GNU General Public License. It is compatible
with Nullsoft’s SHOUTcast system, and runs on most *nix systems.
There is some support for OS/2, BeOS, and MacOS (using the java
implementation of the server). And from recent tests, icecast has
proven to be the most fully featured, robust, and efficient of the
mp3 audio streaming servers.

New in version 1.1.0:

  • Statistics Dumping (to a specified file every X seconds –
    includes reverse lookups for listeners and sources)
  • Multiple source stream support – also allows on-the-fly
    switching between sources
  • 4 Different launch modes for icecast – foreground admin console
    with/without log tailing, old behavior, and daemon mode
  • Many new remote admin features, including support for multiple
    remote admins and two levels of admins
  • Revamped version of shout which should be more robust and
    efficient
  • Support for multiple simultaneous directory servers (such as
    icecast.linuxpower.org and yp.shoutcast.com)
  • Encrypted passwords support
  • Support for tcp_wrappers – this enables the use of hosts.deny
    and hosts.allow to filter connections
  • Configuration file support, including the ability to rehash the
    config file while the server is running
