Default New options for advanced search

Album search now has an additional "Collection Options" section, where you may specify:
  • Include/exclude albums in My Collection
  • Include/exclude albums in My Wish List
  • Include/exclude albums in My Sale List

Under the "Artist Page Search" section in Advanced Search, you may now specify:
  • Artist gender
  • Artist role / credit
Roles are tri-state checkboxes so you can also exclude artists with particular roles, e.g. "show me artists who have composer credits but no arranger credits".

+1 to that; it will make looking for what I'm missing much easier.

Thanks for updates!

P.S. Wouldn´t be possible to include in artist page filter option to divide composer roles to 2 sections: BGM composer & OP, ED, character songs and whatever non-instrumental tracks.

I think it could be quite good option in filter box. It will be great if could be possible to select soundtracks where specific composer is responsible only for BGM´s.

It's not possible with the current system. We would have to add new kinds of classifications, perhaps similar to the ones seen on product pages (soundtrack, op, ed, insert, etc.), and then manually assign them on every album.

Blah has some good ideas for how to deal with this kind of thing (in general), but it's a massive job. Maybe one day.
