Server Update, 2013-08-19

Another two weeks, another release! A variety of bug fixes, primarily, and some assorted improvements. For those of you using replication on resource-constrained servers, this release includes code to make ProcessReplicationChanges run in constant memory, which should hopefully be an improvement.

With help from Michael Wiencek and the rest of the MusicBrainz team, here’s what we’ve done in the last fortnight:


  • [MBS-1549] – Guess Case: “¿” in sentence mode
  • [MBS-2151] – Editing Track Times should remove existing value
  • [MBS-2959] – Release-group XML first release date is using incorrect sorting logic for incomplete dates
  • [MBS-4389] – Editing artist credits shows “undefined” as disambiguation comment
  • [MBS-4788] – Editing → Add Release allows user to set release type even when existing release group has been selected
  • [MBS-5508] – Uploading cover art from https pages causes a warning about insecure pages
