Server update, 2012-10-01

We’ve just finished pushing out an update today, which will be the last update before the schema change, which is now due in 2 weeks. Sadly, this release doesn’t feature the much anticipated relationship editor, which had to be reverted at the last minute as we still think it could do with more user testing. Hopefully it will make the next release!

This release features work from Aurélien Mino, Nicolás Tamargo, nikki, patate12, Pavan Chander, Ulrich Klauer and the MusicBrainz developers. Thanks for your work everyone!
