Style update, 2014-12-03

After skipping a fortnight because of concentrating on the schema change release, here’s the next edition of the style update, with all the changes from the last month. Most of the changes involve adding new medium formats and new place/area relationships, plus making changes and additions related to the new schema change features (events and data tracks).

The biggest change this month is the addition of a classical music titles guideline. This deprecates the old Opera Tracks guideline, and basically just provides a certain amount of standardisation while keeping mostly true to the on-cover titles.

  • [STYLE-221] – Add Data CD format(s)
  • [STYLE-354] – Add a new medium format "dts Audio CD" for CD’s that are encodes as DTS streams

New Feature

  • [STYLE-344] – Style for classical track titles
