New Server Release

It has been rumoured for quite some time now, and I think that the new server release is ready for beta-testing. Please jump in, and help finding the remaining bugs. If you find any, file them to the XHTML 1.1 Milestone, and owner to yours truly.

This is a significant update to the look and feel of MusicBrainz — many pages and workflows have changed and there are bound to be a number of bugs. We’ll need people to jump in help testing if we want to get this release out soon.

See what has changed: Release Notes
Test Server (as usual): test.musicbrainz.org
Bug Tracker (as usual): bugs.musicbrainz.org

For right now, we’re not specifying a release date — we need to get more eyes looking at this new release before we can nail down a date. So, please jump in and help test!!

    The indexed search is not running on the same MusicBrainz server, and is not directly associated with the rest of the MusicBrainz main site. Robert is currently working on fixing the issues with the lucene index, please hang on.

    No no no no no no no! Your pages are now less standards compliant than before! *You cannot serve XHTML 1.1 as text/html.* Use XHTML 1.0! Or, heavens forbid, HTML 4.01 Strict. There’s nothing wrong with it, and it’s not like you need XHTML, especially considering that outdated piece of shit can’t even understand it. Hell, you’re not even serving it as application/xhtml+xml to browsers that _can_ accept it. http://www.webdevout.net/articles/beware_of_xhtml.php is useful if you want to know more about XHTML, HTML and content types.
