Server update, 2015-02-23

We have another server release out today (a little over a day late, as given away by the title). The most exciting change this time around is CritiqueBrainz integration: on release group pages, the most popular and most recent reviews from CritiqueBrainz are now displayed, along with links to write your own. Hopefully people find these reviews useful and interesting and are encouraged to start contributing to CritiqueBrainz themselves!

As usual, the release contains a variety of other bug fixes and improvements, detailed in the changelog below. Thanks very much to chirlu, Freso, reosarevok, and the MetaBrainz team for their work on today’s release. The git tag is v-2015-02-23.

  • [MBS-5959] – _uniq indices for editor_subscribe_{artist,editor,label} not unique

    About the new critiquebrainz section of the release sidebar, could we have it kind of same as ratings : I mean marked as “h2.cb” and the content being in a “p” ?
    ※ ratings are h2.ratings“ and content in a “p”.
    It’s totally selfish request for being able to user script it easily, sorry…
