The SHOUTcast Dev Team presented the recent BETA 5 for sc_trans 2.0 yesterday.
Mostly, some bugs were fixed and some new but smaller functions appeared. There has been an Ajax API sample file added to BETA and the Schedule System has been equipped. Not much happened, like you can guess.
Here you can get an overview about concrete details:
2/3/2009 – sc_trans beta drop 5 – Version 2 revision 25
Logging problems after internal restart fixed.
Resampler and crossfader on PPC Mac was broken. This is now fixed.
Problems with metadata transmission fixed.
potential thread hang (also related to metadata transmission) fixed.
Mac versions no longer become unkillable after an internal restart
Stream timeout for guest DJs fixed
Duration analysis code for mp3 and aacp files improved.
MISC NEW STUFF:
Live capture now supported on Mac.
Mechanism for auto-tranmission of intro and backup files added as part of shoutcast 2 infrastructure work
timeoffset attribute added to scheduling system for time-periodic events.
This will allow scheduling like „every hour on the half-hour“
Ajax API sample provided in testui folder
The current BETA 5 from sc_trans 2.0 can be downloaded and tested here.
Of course you can post a comment about how you feel about the new BETA and what shall be improved. I am going to forward it to the developers.
