MusicBrainz Server update, 2022-03-28

This release makes a bunch of small changes, mostly to URLs. One change that might be particularly worth noting: while earlier the series creation form defaulted to “Release group series” as type, now there’s no default and the user needs to actively pick the kind of series they want. We expect this to help with a relatively common issue where editors would try to add a new series for releases and accidentally create a release group series, leading to confusion about why they couldn’t add their release to it.

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