New NGS data, minor schema change and VM available!

(After fixing one buggy dataset, we have a couple of confirmations that the updated data set is ready to go.)

We have a new NGS dataset available — this data set still has a couple of migration bugs for ARs. The “RecordingA is cover of RecordingB” relationships are borked, but the rest of the data looks to be OK.

This new data also contains one very minor schema change: In the artist_credit_name table, the join_phrase column went from VARCHAR(32) to TEXT, to allow longer join phrases. This shouldn’t really affect anyone, but it is something to be aware of if you’re expecting a VARCHAR(32).

We’re going to work on fixing this bug and then we will put out a new data set and start replication off the new servers. In the mean time, feel free to play with the new data.

I’ve also uploaded a new NGS Virtual Machine — for details on how to use this virtual machine, please see the wiki page for the virtual machine.

UPDATE 1: Fixed the dataset and updated the link.
UPDATE 2: Added a note about the schema change.
