MusicBrainz Server update, 2020-02-18

Today’s release brings a fair amount of small bug fixes and improvements to the website. Notably, it changes the way we display relationships to group ones that are similar (such as different instruments by the same performers) and makes editing history (but not editors and edit notes!) available to visitors without needing to log in.

Thanks to chaban, chirlu, cyberskull, cyna, dimpole, hibiscuskazeneko, jeandeaual, kellnerd, lotheric, mfmeulenbelt, murdos, nikki, rdswift, salorock, supersandro2000, v6lur, and all others who submitted patches, reported issues, tested beta version, or contributed to translations!

The git tag is v-2020-02-18.
