parent b498d4bd
Icecast 2.4.1
* Fix to work properly on OS X
* Removed threadpool from the example config (it is long gone and unused)
* More detailed logging:
Add source IP adress to source start/stop logging
Add mountpoints to some log lines
* Fix logging to send errors to STDERR prior to opening log files
* Fix <auth> in default mounts (<mount type="default">) to work properly
* Fix the JSON status API (status-json.xsl), which could return
invalid JSON in some cases
* SSL Security improvements:
Disable SSLv3
Disable SSL compression
Updated the default ciphers to be more secure
* Handle empty strings in config file better
* Fix logging of client connection duration time on Windows
* Fix possibly broken XML on Windows
* Require Content-Type header for PUT requests
* Fix on-connect and on-disconnect script STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR corruption
due to shared file descriptors. (CVE-2014-9018)
* Fix JSON access by adding support for global and mount specific
custom HTTP headers
Known issues
* HTTP PUT implementation currently doesn’t support chunked encoding yet.
* HTTP PUT with “Expect: 100-Continue” receives first a “100” and soon
after a “200”, instead of the “200” at the end of transmission.
* Caution should be exercised when using <on-connect> or <on-disconnect>,
as there is a small chance of stream file descriptors being mixed up
with script file descriptors, if the FD numbers go above 1024.
This will be further addressed in the next Icecast release.
* Don’t use comments inside <http-headers> as it will prevent processing
of further <header> tags.
* Webinterface shows Login when using just stream_auth.
Icecast 2.4.0
New features
* Support for Ogg Opus streams
* Support for WebM streams
* HTTP 1.1 PUT support for source connections. Deprecating SOURCE method.
* Default mount
This allows you to define a global set of defaults for all mounts.
This way you can use e.g. url-auth for sources and or listeners also for
dynamically generated mounts.
* Web interface redone
Web output properly redone, credit to ePirat.
Added <audio> element for supported audio streams.
Now validates completely as XHTML1.0 strict.
Improves rendering on mobile devices.
* Added basic JSON API (/status-json.xsl) based on a xml2json template by
Doeke Zanstra (see xml2json.xslt). Output is roughly limited to data also
visible through status.xsl.
* Send charset in HTTP headers for everything, excluding file-serv
and streams.
* Allow (standard strftime(3)) %x codes in <dump-file>. Disabled for win32.
* Added stream_start_iso8601, server_start_iso8601 to statistics.
ISO8601 compliant timestamps for statistics. Should make usage in e.g.
JSON much easier.
Added as new variables to avoid breaking backwards compatibility.
* Now compiles for win32 using mingw
* Added options headers and header_prefix to URL based listener auth.
* Updated listener_remove handler, added ip= and agent=
* Allow full URLs to be returned by the master server.
* Security Fix: Override supplementary groups if <changeowner> is used
* Fixes for some race conditions
* Dropped debian packaging directory as debian use their own.
* Send proper HTTP headers in responses to clients.
* Corrected Content-Length header in admin (raw) requests. Thanks to paluh for reporting.
* Escape log entries in access log
* Fixed a memory leak. Lost headers of stream because of wrong ref counter in associated refbuf objects.
* Avoid memory leak in _parse_mount() when type-attribute is set
* Updated web interface to be XHTML compliant.
* Removed status2.xsl from release. It was only a broken example file anyway.
Known issues
* Will crash if certain config tags are left empty.
* Webinterface shows Login when using just stream_auth.
Icecast 2.4 beta1
Note: While WebM and Opus are production grade, there are other pending fixes.
