The MusicBrainz virtual machine is dead, long live the MusicBrainz Docker Compose project. In fact, the virtual machine has been running it for years. Mostly because the data loaded with the virtual machine was too soon obsolete, it doesn’t seem worth it anymore. Plus, new search indexes are much larger than before, and using Docker Compose directly is much more versatile.
The MusicBrainz Docker Compose project has been deeply revamped since two years ago and now ships the new search server based on Solr 7. It can be used for mirroring the MusicBrainz website and database, testing your own app with a local MusicBrainz web service, or developing the MusicBrainz Server itself. Check out the release notes!
Thanks to everyone who reported issues and contributed patches for two years!
