[KimDaBa] new (and perhaps final) snapshot

Well the problem with your approach is that the listbox is used for "and" when 
the dialog is used when annotating.
Thus I'm afraid your suggestion would be confusing for users.

Anyway, this is something I don't want to change before 2.0. 
I really have only a few hours to put into KimDaBa before 2.0 release.

Cheers
Jesper

| Jesper, in the TODO list, there is one thing we discussed before
|
| ======================================================================
| Features still to be considered (aka not likely to go in next release)
| ======================================================================
| - In search mode, radio buttons labeled "Or" and "And" should be available
|   to tell how the items in the listbox should be combined.
|
| IMHO, 95% of the benefit of this option rely in the fact that "Or"

| if "Or" is default, I can just clic clic clic scroll clic clic clic
| clic scroll clic clic clic et voilà. Today it's a mess to do that
|
| On the other hand, I can hardly imagine myself wanting to find a
| picture for whith more than "peopleA AND PeopleB AND PeopleC" (I
| imagine to get less than 100 pictures, that is one thumbnail view, for
| this kind or research), so here, it's fine to use the keyboard
|
| For this reason, I think this should be applied before 2.0 comes
