Server update, 2013-07-22

We’ve just finished deploying the second update to for July. Continuing the trend, this release is primarily bug fixes with a few new improvements. Notably, people should be happy to hear that the Cover Art Archive now supports PNGs and GIFs, ISRC editing has become easier, and the release and relationship editors should be a little bit more stable.
