Server update, 2015-10-19

Today’s release fixes some bugs causing certain open edits to get stuck, and improves on our URL auto-selection code. Notably, URL shorteners are now detected and blocked from being entered.

The git tag is v-2015-10-19.

Bug

  • [MBS-8571] – Stuck edit: medium_positions does not account for all mediums in all releases
  • [MBS-8572] – Stuck edit: update or delete on table “recording” violates foreign key constraint “recording_alias_fk_recording” on table “recording_alias”
  • [MBS-8573] – “Edit artist” edit can be entered with a disambiguation comment containing only whitespace

Improvement

  • [MBS-6534] – URL autoselect LinkedIn → has a social networking page at
  • [MBS-7904] – Block URL shorterners

Task

  • [MBS-8244] – Add “social network” autoselect for foursquare

Server update, 2015-10-05

Besides the changes listed below, this release should mark the completion of the incremental sitemaps work required by Google. Practically, this means I’ll have more time to work on user-facing features from now on.

Thanks to Gentlecat and Zas for their work on today’s release. The git tag is v-2015-10-05.

Bug

  • [MBS-7828] – Seeding secondary types doesn’t work
  • [MBS-8553] – Internal server error when an automatic series reordering involves multiple of the same entity
  • [MBS-8561] – The entity type should be preselected when following an “Add to a new collection” link on an entities page

Improvement

  • [MBS-8554] – Cache area containments
  • [MBS-8560] – Add Google Play to the sidebar
