Icecast Server/Installing latest version (official Xiph repositories)
Xiph.org provides the latest version of Icecast packaged for various distributions. The packages are built centrally from one set of sources on the openSUSE OpenBuildService instance in the Multimedia/Xiph.org project.
Packages are usually available on release day. Packaging follows closely the original distro packaging to stay a seamless drop in replacement. The packages are meant for users who need the latest version of Icecast or HTTPS support, while their distribution doesn't provide it.
