MusicBrainz Server update, 2022-04-18

We’re back with another smallish release, mostly fixing minor bugs. This is our last release before the schema change on May 16; we are taking a one release break to have more time to concentrate on that. Of course you should still let us know if you find we have introduced any new bugs (er… totally intentional easter eggs that is!), but unless they are very serious, we will probably only fix them during the second half of May.

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

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

The git tag is v-2022-04-18.

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.

MusicBrainz Server update, 2022-03-14

This release, aside from fixing a few more small bugs, adds a lot of new features to the filtering options available on artist pages. You can now filter works (including by whether the artist was a writer or a performer), filter release groups by secondary type, specify you want only cases with no types set at all. Additionally, pages with lists of edits have just been converted to React, so do let us know if you see any strange behaviour there.

MusicBrainz Server update, 2022-02-14

This is a small release of bugfixes and improvements, since a lot of the team’s focus recently has been on improving code documentation and tests and other behind the scenes tasks. It does fix a couple bugs that had been reported multiple times though (the release editor entering bogus empty annotation edits, and the area selection dropdown sometimes failing to work properly) so hopefully it will still make some of your editing a bit better!

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.

MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-12-13

This release fixes a few small regressions introduced in the last month or so, and includes a few small improvements (including, finally, some degree of autoselection for Apple Music links).

Two new releases of MusicBrainz Docker are also available. The first one mitigated the vulnerability CVE-2021-44228 for local search. The second one matches this update of MusicBrainz Server. See the release notes for update instructions.

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.

MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-11-15

Just a few bugs and improvements this time – the most interesting change might be that it is now possible to see if we have cover art for a release group from release group lists (including the artist overview page).
