Artist order in Album Browser

As I understand, the order by Artist in the Album Browser is actually by Album Artist to avoid having several entries for albums with different artists. That's great, but it seems that ordering is not working well as you can see in this screenshot: http://img803.imageshack.us/img803/8851 ... dering.png

I can confirm that there is a problem with the sorting.

An example is the album "random album title" by deadmaou5. No filters. Sorting on either Artist or Artist, Year or Artist Year Descending.

The album has set to "deadmau5", but one track that has set to "Kaskade & Deadmou5". All other tracks has set to "Deadmou5".

The whole album will appear sorted on "Kaskade", between "Karsh Kale" and "Kate Bush". It is not visible among my other "deadmou5" albums.

@Adoby : can you send me your collection db guayadeque.db to my mail to check the problem you mention ?
You can find the file in ~/.guayadeque/Collections/XXXXX/guayadeque.db

Thank ou very much. Got it and could test it.
Looks like its out of order because when the album artist is filled it shows the album artist but for sorting it uses the artist.
I dont know why but sqlite takes this as the artist when you group by albumid

I have commited a change to take album artist into account doing sorting for albums in album library listbox and in album browser

Also the album browser view is more compact now.

In revision 1795

Thanks for your help

I just compiled revision 1795 and can confirm that it sorts my deadmou5 albums correctly now, using album artist. Also all albums with album artist "Various Artists" now appear together, instead of spread out in the album browser.

Great!

Thanks for a lightning fast response and fix!
