MusicBrainz Server update, 2020-11-02

Right after Halloween, this new release of MusicBrainz Server tricks some bugs and treats some improvements, plus some work on the usually terrifying React conversion and updates to handle external links.

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