Hi Gilles

just downloaded the last digiKam-6.0.0-beta1-20180916T150303-Win64.exe

Access to the album is now possible during export. (tested from album 
view and editor), thanks a lot.

some other feedback

  * when using the filter "picture without geolocalisation" and adding
    some geolocalisation tags to a picture, once done, the album is not
    refreshed, but I don't remember what was the behavior in 5.9.  it
    works well with star (remove a star on a picture , dynamicallyu
    remove it from the filtered view)
  * may I ask (for a future version) to get the same behavior for the
    geolocalisation window. the thumbnails are small on this window and
    looking at the original image from album would help. And today this
    is not possibble to navigate into the album when geolocalisation is
    window is opened.
  * I tried the "similarity", and generate the fingerprints for about 70
    albums, but it hanged at 90%, restarted it and tried to use it , but
    didn't found where to launch the search (see attched screenshot
    below) and it also hanged again at least one time

will continue the test with this new version.

thanks a lot for your help
