The MusicBrainz server devs (Lukáš, Murdos, Acid2 and myself) have been busy hacking on new features and fixing bugs for the next server release. While we’re not quite ready for the next release, we are starting to narrow down what will be in the next release and could use your help in testing these new features.
In particular we have the new folksonomy tagging feature (tag your favorite artists, releases, label and tracks like last.fm) ready to go and would like to get your feedback on how to integrate the new feature better into our web pages.
Also, please help us test various bug fixes that we’ve made.
But, like I said, we’re not ready for the next release. I personally still have a lot of open bugs I intend to tackle, and Lukáš is working on merging another feature or two from other SVN branches. But we are far enough along that we could use your feedback. Also, since some features are still in flux, we’ve also not set a firm date for when we’re going to push this release onto the main servers — at this point we’re shooting for some time in September.
For more details on what we’ve done and where to test, please see our preliminary release notes.
