    • diff to trunk
      • fast pre-buffering aka burst-on-connect.
        State a burst size in bytes to indicate how much should be sent at listener connect.
      • mp3 accepts artist and title separately on the url.
      • program invocation at stream start and end, per mount based.
      • on-demand relays, activated on first listener, disconnected when listenersfalls to 0.
        Available for master relays as well.
      • multiple Ogg codec streaming. Current codecs handled are Theora, Vorbis, Speex, Writ.
      • Clients are started at theora key frame if theora is being streamed.
      • Added URL and command based listener authentication
      • server xml reload, and reopen logging available via admin url
      • slave startup re-organised so that relays are more independant
      • on xml reload, active sources are updated as well
      • When max-listeners reached, a HTTP 302 code can be sent to redirect clients to alternative slave hosts.
      • authenticated relays, those that match the relay user/pass, bypass the max-listener check
