An issue with the new ocaml-cry module that replaces the shout library has
been recently discovered.
This issue was related to the data sent to the icecast server and could result
in a higher load and delay when sending data.
We have released a new version of ocaml-cry that fixes this issue, numbered
We have also released a new liquidsoap-full tarball, numbered 0.9.2-2 and now
available in the download section on sourceforge.net.
Additionally, our custom stable packages have been rebuild against this new
version, both for the i386 and the amd64 architecture.
The package available in Debian sid/unstable is now built against the fixed
ocaml-cry as well.
We recommend that any user that uses liquidsoap 0.9.2 updates its liquidsoap
to make sure it uses ocaml-cry 0.1.2. Please note that ocaml modules are not
dynamically loaded, so you need to rebuilt liquidsoap against the new ocaml-
cry if you are building from source.
Thanks for your attention and constant support with our software.

For the record, the new version also fixes a real bug: older versions
could drop some data chunks resulting in hiccups in the stream. So if
you experience that kind of issue, it's a known problem and you
probably just need to update.
Big thanks to Romain for releasing a new full package!
