I have gone to a great effort to port the existing forum (as of the 20th) to another forum script, to see how well it functions. The temporary forums may be found here:
If general consensus is that this is a suitable replacement, even with all the conversion errors in place (bloody IPB BBcode mess with nested tags) then the forums may be taken offline for at least a day to freeze them before a final migration.
Also, here is a Git repository containing my changes to the default theme, in case anyone wants to help with actual code contributions and not just words.
E: The migration is now complete. I hope everyone enjoys it, at least somewhat. Most of you will need to recover your passwords using your email accounts.
The server has now been moved to a new VM slice, and is live at https://hydrogenaud.io

After much waiting, Opus 1.1.1 is finally here. The main changes are:
The quality of the encoder should be mostly unchanged compare to version 1.1. The code is available from the downloads page at: http://www.opus-codec.org/downloads/ or at: http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/opus/opus-1.1.1.tar.gz
In other news, we're currently working on improving low bit-rate quality (< 48 kb/s) for both speech and music. Stay tuned.

Google released a new version of their Chromecast hardware today dedicated to audio.
From the website:
Chromecast Audio is a small device that plugs into your speaker for streaming music over Wi-Fi. Once set up, simply use your iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone or tablet, Mac® or Windows® laptop or Chromebook to cast your favourite tunes to the best speakers in the house.
Supports an optional Guest mode that lets nearby guests cast without joining your WiFi network.
Multiroom casting (like Sonos) is expected in a future update.
Casting music from a Windows PC is apparently possible using third party software like AirParrot.
