## Stability
* The application runs mostly stable. The GUI interfaces are workable.
* It's supposed to run on Gtk2 and Gtk3. Albeit threading is still an issue.
* Python3 support is achieved.  
* There haven't been any optimizations regarding memory usage and 
* The current internal API is still somewhat underdocumented. 
## Current bugs

* <s>Audio- and list-format support is not very robust / needs better API</s>
* <s>Not all keyboard shortcuts work</s>
* <s>Some internal UI state flags remain, that need to be substituted with Gtk callbacks.</s>
## Features

* Treeview layouts and lists are dynamically from datamap[] structure and stream{} dicts.
* Channel categories are often built-in defaults (can be freshened up however) 
* Config vars and cache data get stored as JSON in ~/.config/streamtuner2/ 
* Plugin meta data spec is mostly used now for configuration description, and plugin management.
## Missing:

* Localization (not actually planned for)

## Security notes

* FAULTY DATA: Directory scrapers use partially complex regular expressions - which is probably not a security risk, but can lead to inexact decoding. Albeit HTML entitiy cleanup and constraints are in place. Charset fixups are done on a case-by-case basis. Doesn't help for Xiph however (already receiving garbage there). As for fragile, some DOM/PyQuery extraction targets are less exact even.
* MEDIUM: integrity checking for .pls / .m3u references and files is only done on conversion. (Set audio players to use `%xspf` for maximum filtering.)
* <s>HIGH RISK: no verification of downloaded favicon image files (ico/png), 
 as they are passed to gtk.gdk.Pixbuf (OTOH data pre-filtered by Google)</s>
* MEDIUM: audio players / decoders are easily affected by buffer overflows 
  from corrupt mp3/stream data. However nothing we can preassert here, streamtuner2 just passes them on.
