Icecast is a streaming media server which currently supports Ogg Vorbis and MP3 audio streams. It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between. It is very versatile in that new formats can be added relatively easily, and it supports open standards for communication and interaction.
Release Notes: Various new features were added and a number of bugfixes were included. This is a recommended update.

The admin/web XSLT interface was updated. The server can now be installed as a Win32 service.

A Web-based administration interface was added. Listing is supported in stream directories. A new relay system was implemented. Stability has been tested very thoroughly. Many other features were added.
