Default Improved quicksearch and cddb/freedb emulation

The quicksearch / simple search has been extended to include results from artist and publisher entries. These results can be accessed from the side tabs, which also indicate the number of matching entries for each category. Note that if your search returns a unique result across all categories, you will be brought directly to the entry.

Zorbfish has updated the cddb/freedb emulation feature as well:
  • Improved query performance and a disc length bugfix
  • Query works with both disc and non-disc sources again
  • Added ja.utf8 language option for returning Japanese in UTF-8
  • Fixed disc title issue for mixed releases (thanks to CHz for pointing that out)
The feature is now confirmed working with EAC, CDex, MP3Tag and foobar. Foobar may have issues with queries that return multiple matches; Zorb is working on a fix.

Another minor update: cover images on album entries are now automatically resized to fit into the 250x250 display without getting cut off.
