Switching library
The current implementation of library switching is a great step forward and already solves a lot of the nastiness I needed to deal with due to the unconventional way I want to manage my music collection.
What it does now is provide a kind of view on the database. Similar to SQL 'VIEW' but not readonly. Sharing the file location has its pros and cons.

MSPro stores only the relative path in the database. It sounds doable to me to also add the name of the current library when constructing file paths. This can be made an setting in the switch library screen, and only settable when a new library is created. This eliminates the need to convert file paths when switching from old style to new style database. Files that have absolute filenames in the database stay shared between all libraries.

Thanks for the great progress, and count me in for the test team!
