Clickable Languages

You can now view the biography in different languages from the main artist page.

Just click on the flag icons above the artist biography.

Genre, Speed and Mood defaults.

When you edit an Album or Track, the edit page will now default to the artists Moods and Genres so you don't have to type them in each time.

In addition, albums are defaulted to medium speed if they are originally empty.

You can override these settings at any time by simply changing the pull downs.

MySQL tweaks

Not really a new feature but MySQL should now be a lot quicker on the website. The only real slowness is the external Apis from song kick and YouTube. I might look at caching those in the future.

What did you do to MySQL to improve performance? You could probably cache API results for maybe 24 hours.

Yeh i've added a query cache and assigned 512MB of ram to it.

That should cover most queries. Will see how it goes. The website is certainly faster for some of the COUNT queries like the chart pages.

New artist image search button

There is a new "magnifying glass" button on artists who are missing an image to click on. It will launch a google image search for that artist in high quality. Should make searching for images much quicker.

New add album lists

When adding an album, we now search the MusicBrainz API for all studio albums and provide a list.
Its not perfect because some albums don't show due to them featuring Various Artists, so I've also left the URL box as well. This should make albums much easier to add.

Excellent, this will definitely make it easier to add new releases. Any plans to list missing singles to add?
