MusicBrainz Server update, 2022-01-31

We took a break for the holidays and we really needed it, it seems, because we took a while to get back in action. But we’re back now, with a release that fixes a bunch of small bugs and gets rid of some annoyances. It also makes it easier to mark spammers as such, making them unable to edit and leave notes and also blocking their profile to hide any spammy links in one click. If you’re wondering why we don’t just delete the accounts, it’s because we want to keep them as fodder to train the still-in-development automatic spam-detecting SpamBrainz project.

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

Picard 2.7.3 fixes macOS packages

Picard 2.7.3 fixes a packaging regression for macOS, which caused the app to be reported as damaged when trying to launch it. This affected especially users of macOS 10.13, see PICARD-2395 for details.

There are no other changes in this release. If you are running Picard on a different operating system or if you are using macOS but could start Picard without an error message than you don’t need to upgrade.

The latest release is available for download on the Picard download page.

MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-11-29

Another set of mostly small fixes and improvements, of which the most significant change might be that editors will need to explicitly confirm that they want to add a “disc 1” or “CD 1” medium title; this should save editors some cleanup work in the future. A report for this issue has also been added to help cleaning up the ones already there.

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