Comment Re:So what? Stay using Icecast (Score 1) 315

I'm not talking about icecast as a directory client. I'm talking about the module that was removed from VLC. Read the press release from VideoLAN:

SHOUTcast Radio is a web site which provides a directory of radio stations avalaible on the Internet. It provides categorizations of such stations, so it is easier to find one that matches your interest. According to users feedback, the integration of such directory inside VLC is one of the best features of the software.

Listening to Shoutcast or icecast streams is done by many projects. I doubt you'd need a license from Nullsoft to do so.

LLVM interoperates with GCC already. From the WIkipedia entry: "LLVM was originally written to be a more aggressive, higher performance system for the existing GCC stack,[3] and many of the GCC front-ends have been modified to work with it. LLVM currently supports the compilation of C, C++, Fortran, Objective-C, Ada, D, using front-ends derived from version 4.0.1 and 4.2 of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC)."
