Server update, 2016-12-19

This release features code from GCI student dpmittal, who fixed four of the tickets below under our mentorship. One of those tickets was for displaying the excellent artist icons that former GCI student (and current mentor) gcilou created. Those icons are displayed to the left of the name at the top of artist pages (examples: person, group, choir, orchestra, character, other). Nice work, gcilou and dpmittal! We also have various fixes and improvements thanks to chirlu and Zastai, listed below.

The git tag is v-2016-12-19.
