Changes to Release URLs

We’ve just begin changing Discogs Release URLs into a new format:

old format: www.discogs.com/release/123

new format: www.discogs.com/Artist-Title/release/123

Most of the site has been converted to use this new format, except for the search engine and some marketplace pages. Those will be converted over the next few days.

[b]This change will not break any existing links on or outside of Discogs. Release URLs in the old format will continue working forever.[/b]

We are making this change for several reasons:

1) To improve our search engine rankings and become more competitive with other music sites.
2) To improve usability. When a user posts a release url on a forum or blog, people can now know something about the content before clicking the link.
3) It’s part of our upcoming implementation of Master Release.

Again, This change will not break any existing links on or outside of Discogs. And Release URLs in the old format will continue working forever.
