I’m pleased to announce the next public beta release of GlassCoder, a 
minimalist JACK live encoder client for Icecast and Shoutcast streaming 
servers.  GlassCoder is available under the GNU Public License version 
2.  Some features available in this beta release:

Support for Icecast (v2) and Shoutcast (v1) streaming audio servers

Support for the following audio codecs:
   MPEG-1/1.5 Layer 2 ('MP2')
   MPEG-1/1.5 Layer 3 ('MP3')
   MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding, Main Profile ('AAC')
   MPEG-4 Advanced Audio Coding, High Efficiency Profile ('HE-AAC+')
   Ogg Vorbis

Support for the JACK Audio Connection Kit (http://www.jackaudio.org)

GlassCoder is a ‘minimalist’ client in the sense that it utilizes no GUI 
or configuration file components whatever; its entire ‘user interface’ 
consists of a command-line invocation, making it particularly 
well-suited for use cases where the encoder is driven by fan external 
system, such as an automation system or script.  Full documentation is 
provided by the included man page.
