MusicBrainz Server update, 2020-10-05

As we just returned from the virtual MusicBrainz Summit 20, here comes a mostly maintenance release that fixes a bunch of bugs (among which many are about localization) and provides a few handy improvements. It even features a new report showing releases having the same barcode but currently in different release groups, so if you feel like it, do try and help us look into those!

A new release of MusicBrainz Docker is also available that matches this update of MusicBrainz Server. See the release notes for update instructions.

Special thanks to the DistriNet Research Group for making and responsibly sharing a very detailed audit of our OAuth service that has been very helpful with releasing major security improvements in the previous server update!

Thanks to chaban, fabe56, hibiscuskazeneko, humhumxx, jesus2099, lotheric, mfmeulenbelt, nikki, otringal, psychoadept, and wcw1966 for having reported bugs and suggested improvements. Thanks to dimpole, listmycds, mfmeulenbelt, peter9811 for updating the translations. And thanks to all others who tested the beta version!

The git tag is v-2020-10-05.
