MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-05-03

Hi! This time we have another small release with a bunch of minor fixes and small quality of life improvements. The latter include one small improvement to an error message requested over 10 years ago! It might take us time, but we get to things eventually, and that’s what matters, right? Right? Next release will be our May schema change – you can read what is coming with that one at the dedicated announcement post.

A new release of MusicBrainz Docker is also available that solves an issue for live indexing and matches this update of MusicBrainz Server. See the release notes for update instructions.

Thanks to chaban, Cyberskull, Lotheric, nikki, salo.rock and Sophist for having reported bugs and suggested improvements. Thanks to mfmeulenbelt, outsidecontext and salo.rock for updating the translations. And thanks to all others who tested the beta version!

The git tag is v-2021-05-03.
