Server update, 2014-03-17

Another fortnight and another release with a small crop of bugs and then some! The biggest changes this week:

  • Work attributes support, originally part of last May’s schema change, is finally done and released!
  • PDF support for the Cover Art Archive. PDFs won’t appear as the front cover, since they can’t generally be displayed in a browser and the Internet Archive doesn’t currently create thumbnail images for them.
  • Removing RDFa. Most of you probably never used it anyway, but as we’ve been talking about for a while now, and especially with the great work LinkedBrainz has been doing, it was time to stop poorly half-maintaining rapidly-disintegrating RDFa support on musicbrainz.org itself.

Aside from that, we have the usual crop of fixes, primarily cleanup from the fixes above, the new release editor, and the new URL relationships.

The git tag for this release is v-2014-03-17.
