Attention.png On 2006/04/20, we started changing the terminology from Album to Release. This is now more or less FinishedWork --Keschte

What will be changed?

  • The wiki pages titles, and content of official documents
  • All the static documents, currently on the main server will be wikized, and will make use of the terminology changes currently conducted on the wiki. (see WikiDocs)

What will not be changed?

  • Names of the pages on the MusicBrainz Server which include the word album in their title
  • The names of the URL parameters (e.g. albumid)
  • The name of the Database tables, and the respective perl classes.

Copy+Paste thingies:
