MusicBrainz Server update, 2019-11-25

Starting with this release, we read our genres list from the genre table rather than a hardcoded list inside a JSON file. This should have no user-visible impact, but let us know if you encounter any new issues related to genres. (This change should however help us improve genres further.)

We also have a small list of bug fixes and improvements, listed below. One neat new feature is the ability to sort edit searches by date closed or closing.

Thanks to chaban, culinko, drsaunde, jesus2099, mglubb, lotheric, psychoadept, sothotalker, and all others who reported issues or helped test or translate today’s release!

The git tag is v-2019-11-25.
