I'm pleased to announce we have completed and launched the latest version of OneMusicAPI! This release's main new feature is the inclusion of the MusicBrainz database in the Aggregated Database (ADB).

MusicBrainz' inclusion in the ADB means further speed, scaling and lookup improvements. It means we are going to be able to slowly (once other services are stopped) decommission our venerable own hosted MusicBrainz server.

The API remains the same, so there's no new API version for this release. You can carry on calling the existing endpoint:

http://api.onemusicapi.com/20131025/release/?title=Overgrown&artist=James+Blake&minCertainty=0.75&maxResultCount=10&inc=images

Remember you'll need to add your user_key (which you can get by signing up).

We've also begun importing more data into the ADB. Namely: barcode and catalog numbers are now stored internally, although not provided in query results. They help us distinguish and link releases during queries, thus improving coverage.

Finally, we've improved the coverage when searching OneMusicAPI for a release and only a subset of track names are queried. This is useful when you have a number of odd-tracks from a release (be it an album, single, EP or whatever).

Thanks to Martin Fisch who made the the image above available for sharing.
