GISS icecast v 2.3.2-kh4-giss releases

as copy/pasted from the wiki :


a release of an Icecast special version for G.I.S.S. has been made this month,
some modifications might be useful to some other projects
and fixed bugs has been imported in Karl Heye's branched icecast.

The G.I.S.S. icecast is only fit to run on a master server and needs to
be connected to a G.I.S.S. server database, so the slaves should run an
icecast >= 2.3.2-kh5 from http://www.icecast.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/

veejay 1.4 released

Veejay is a 'visual' instrument and realtime video sampler

It allows you to "play" the video like you would play a piano.
While playing, you can record the resulting video directly to disk (video sampling).

Veejay can be used to manipulate video in a realtime environment i.e. 'VeeJay'
for visual performances or for (automated) interactive video installations.

Veejay 1.4 supports now the perspective transformation on a per-sample basis,
You can use this feature to calibrate your camera in such way that the video
projected corresponds with the object's position in physical space - at least,
approximately depending on pixel to millimeter ratio's. This is great for setups
wall projections like interactive mirrors or floor projections with interactive water
(rippleTV) You can also use this feature to project the video onto an object on stage.
This feature is in beta.

New Features:
* Beta: Camera/Projector calibration.
* Chained rendering of image effects
* Sample based perspective transformation setup (CTRL-s)
* Some new FX

* Veejay/GveejayReloaded

- Many bugfixes
- support lower resolution streams when playing in highres
- better colorspace support
- Improved handling of action files (veejay's saved settings)
- Improved OSD/Font rendering and SRT subtitling

( dependencies, themes, utilities )

( veejay client and server )
