Server Update, 2013-02-25

Thanks to work from Ben Ockmore, Frederik “Freso” S. Olesen, Michael Wiencek, Nicolás Tamargo, nikki, Sean Burke, and the MusicBrainz team, we’ve just released a new version of the MusicBrainz website. As usual, this is mostly a bug fix release, but we do have one shiny new feature… collection subscriptions! It is now possible to subscribe to your own collections, or other public collections, and receive daily emails summarizing edits recently made that might affect releases in these collections. This feature is new, so if you encounter any problems, please be sure to let us know!
