Server update, 2014-08-04

Another fortnight, another release. This one includes the usual bug fixes as well as some improvements. For editors, sort names are no longer required on alias pages (they’ll default to the name if left blank). For web service clients, it’s also now possible to do fuzzy TOC searches for non-CD mediums by passing a media-format=all option to the /ws/2/discid endpoint.

Thanks to chirlu, nikki, and the MetaBrainz team for their hard work on today’s release.

The git tag is v-2014-08-04.

    I know this is probably obvious to most people. However, could you either include instructions on what needs to be done when there is a schema change for the person that runs their own server? If not, how about a link to the (best) instructions about what to do? The restore I understand, even though it’s nice to include that too.
