pyshoutcast v0.7.1

pyshoutcast version 0.7.1 has just been released. It implements a Python shoutcast API which makes it possible to list genres, stations, do search, etc, using the shoutcast yellow pages service.

Unfortunately, I just found a forum post stating that Amarok and VLC have removed support for shoutcast due to licensing issues. I'm not sure why because I can't find any info about it, I'll try to find out more details.

Anyway, to try it out you can start a interactive python prompt and paste the following code:
>>> import shoutcast
>>> api = shoutcast.ShoutCast()
>>> api.random()
