3
4 -------------------------------------------------
5 0.3.3 (to be announced) "axiomatic perspectivity"
6 -------------------------------------------------
7
8 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
9 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
10
11 -----------------------------------------
12 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
13 -----------------------------------------
14 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
15
16 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
17 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
18 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
19 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
20 of output.
21 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
22 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
23
24 ---------------------------------------
25 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
26 ---------------------------------------
27
28 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
29 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
30 a good sign.
31
32 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
33 dccp sender.
34 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
35 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
36 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
37 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
38 Gerrit Renker).
39 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
40 - Audiod performance improvements.
41 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
42 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
43 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
44
45 -------------------------------------
46 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
47 -------------------------------------
48
49 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
50
51
52 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
53 for a major release like this.
54
55 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
56 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
57 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
58 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
59
60 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
61 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
62 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
63
64 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
65 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
66 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
67 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
68 - Lyrics support.
69 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
70 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
71 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
72 Solaris (sparc64).
73 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
74 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
75 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
76 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
77 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
78 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
79 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
80 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
81 para_gui is still there.
82 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
83 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
84 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
85 - Improved error subsystem.
86 - The earth-shaking new logo.
87
88 -----------------------------------------
89 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
90 -----------------------------------------
91
92 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
93 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
94
95 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
96 - universal chunk queueing.
97 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
98 to Gerrit Renker).
99 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
100 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
101 codes.
102 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
103 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
104 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
105 compiler characteristics.
106 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
107 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
108
109 --------------------------------------
110 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
111 --------------------------------------
112
113 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
114 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
115 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
116 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
117
118 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
119 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
120 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
121 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
122 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
123 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
124 and AFS_WRITE.
125 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
126 to start only after a few seconds.
127 - fix osx_writer hangs
128 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
129 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
130
131 -----------------------------------------
132 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
133 -----------------------------------------
134
135 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
136
137 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
138 startup rather than for each connection
139 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
140 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
141 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
142 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
143 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
144 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
145 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
146 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
147 correctly
148 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
149 - documentation improvements
150 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
151 - new man pages
152
153 -------------------------------------------
154 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
155 -------------------------------------------
156
157 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
158 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
159 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
160
161 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
162 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
163 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
164 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
165 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
166 - some robustness fixes
167 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
168 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
169 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
170
171 ---------------------------------------
172 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
173 ---------------------------------------
174
175 A bunch of new features and core changes.
176
177 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
178 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
179 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
180 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
181 para_recv and para_filter.
182 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
183 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
184 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
185 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
186 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
187 - update to libortp-0.10.1
188 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
189 - update to autoconf-2.60
190
191
192 ------------------------------------------
193 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
194 ------------------------------------------
195
196 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
197 features:
198
199
200 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
201 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
202 for this.
203 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
204 - para_play renamed to para_write
205 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
206 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
207 - compress filter speed improvements
208 - update to libortp-0.9.1
209 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
210 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
211 code for the interactive mode was removed).
212 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
213 work, but it gets no more testing.
214 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
215 reduces its size quite a bit.
216 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
217 and --enable-mysql-libs
218
219 ------------------------------------
220 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
221 ------------------------------------
222
223 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
224 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
225 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
226 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
227
228
229 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
230 selector)
231 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
232 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
233 more info (and some examples).
234 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
235 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
236 - the new ipc subsystem
237 - new audio file selector: playlist
238 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
239 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
240 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
241 change the selector at runtime.
242 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
243 - para_play fixes
244
245
246 --------------------------------------
247 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
248 --------------------------------------
249
250 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
251 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
252 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
253 to the new source documentation.
254
255 - autoconf cleanup
256 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
257 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
258 - gui improvements:
259 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
260 - scrollable output window
261 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
262 - fix color of command output.
263 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
264 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
265 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
266
267
268 -------------------------------------------
269 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
270 -------------------------------------------
271
272 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
273 a lot of small improvements.
274
275 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
276 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
277 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
278 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
279 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
280 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
281 of the ortp receiver.
282 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
283 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
284 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
285 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
286 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
287 and reduces code size.
288
289
290 -----------------------------------------
291 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
292 -----------------------------------------
293
294 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
295
296 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
297 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
298 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
299 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
300 read/write operations are used).
301 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
302 certain circumstances.
303
304
305 -------------------------------------------
306 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
307 -------------------------------------------
308
309 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
310
311
312 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
313 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
314 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
315 too early on a loaded network.
316 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
317 future time by the --start_time option.
318 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
319 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
320 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
321 only the http receiver in this case.
322 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
323 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
324 - improved ortp timings.
325 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
326 gcc < 3.0.
327
328
329 -------------------------------------------
330 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
331 -------------------------------------------
332
333 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
334 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
335
336 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
337 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
338 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
339 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
340 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
341 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
342 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
343 rather than calling find(1). The server option
344 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
345 - documentation update
346 - man pages
347 - header file cleanup
348 - para_client code cleanup
349 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
350
351
352 ------------------------------------------
353 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
354 ------------------------------------------
355
356 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
357 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
358 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
359 is no longer needed).
360
361 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
362 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
363 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
364 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
365 in parallel.
366
367 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
368 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
369 sender" for more information.
370 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
371 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
372 http receiver.
373 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
374 senders.
375 - ogg timing improvements
376 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
377 - empty stream definitions work again
378 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
379 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
380
381
382 ---------------------------------------
383 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
384 ---------------------------------------
385
386 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
387
388 - audiod:
389 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
390 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
391 for more information.
392 - fix memory leak
393 - code cleanup
394 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
395 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
396 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
397 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
398 non-standard places
399 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
400 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
401 new command line option: --announce_time
402
403
404 -----------------------------------------
405 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
406 -----------------------------------------
407
408 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
409
410 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
411 (including none) filters for each supported audio
412 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
413 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
414 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
415 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
416 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
417 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
418 from stdin.
419 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
420 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
421 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
422 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
423 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
424 clients that play the same stream.
425
426
427 ------------------------------------------
428 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
429 ------------------------------------------
430
431 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
432 for the mysql database tool.
433
434 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
435 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
436 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
437 resulting binaries)
438 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
439 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
440 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
441 again.
442 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
443 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
444 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
445 information.
446
447
448 ---------------------------------------
449 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
450 ---------------------------------------
451
452 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
453 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
454
455 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
456 - cleanup of the build system
457 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
458 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
459 line utitlity
460 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
461 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
462 more information.
463 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
464 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
465 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
466 Default: "para_client pic"
467 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
468 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
469
470
471
472 ------------------------------------------
473 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
474 ------------------------------------------
475
476 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
477 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
478 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
479
480
481 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
482 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
483 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
484 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
485 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
486 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
487 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
488 libvorbisfile.
489 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
490 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
491 - documentation updates
492 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
493 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
494 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
495 playback time rather than streaming time
496 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
497 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
498 - switch from gzip to bzip2
499
500
501 ----------------------------------------
502 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
503 ----------------------------------------
504
505 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
506 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
507 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
508 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
509
510 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
511 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
512 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
513 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
514 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
515 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
516 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
517 than from stdin
518 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
519 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
520 mp3 files with invalid header information
521 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
522 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
523 - diffstats
524
525
526 ---------------------------------------
527 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
528 ---------------------------------------
529
530 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
531 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
532 stick to mp3...
533
534 - fix several memory leaks
535 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
536 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
537 rename your old database.
538 - rework ogg vorbis code
539 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
540 disabled
541 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
542 - simplified audio format API
543 - para_pob_ogg is gone
544
545 ------------------------------------
546 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
547 ------------------------------------
548
549 Let's slide gently into the new year.
550
551 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
552 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
553 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
554 README and FEATURES for more info.
555 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
556 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
557 race-free.
558 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
559 - improved help message for sl
560 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
561 perfectly ok.
562 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
563
564 -----------------------------------------
565 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
566 -----------------------------------------
567
568 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
569 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
570 enhancements went also in.
571
572 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
573 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
574 exists, rather than returning errors
575 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
576 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
577 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
578 no server is running
579 - si: report also server pid
580 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
581 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
582 - fix pic_add, hist
583 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
584 - many small fixes and cleanups
585
586 ---------------------------------------
587 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
588 ---------------------------------------
589
590 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
591 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
592 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
593 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
594 compatible in that respect.
595
596 Visible changes:
597
598 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
599 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
600 always work.
601 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
602 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
603 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
604 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
605 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
606 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
607 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
608 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
609
610
611 -------------------------------------------
612 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
613 -------------------------------------------
614
615 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
616
617 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
618 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
619 id.
620 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
621
622 -----------------------------------------
623 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"

641
642 -----------------------------------------
643 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
644 -----------------------------------------
645
646 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
647 and stream large audio sets happily)
648 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
649 streaming software
650 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
651 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
652 file/config option for dbtool.
653 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
654 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
655 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
656 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
657 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
658 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
659 show silly logo on startup
660 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
661 manipulating attributes
662 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
663 - revised and beautified documentation
664 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
665 - autoconf
666

670
671 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
672 core code considerably.

675 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
676 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
677 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
678 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
679 continuously.
680 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
681 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
682 - codename funnies
