basically a fine piece of work, and i have the amazon lookups working fine with my growing book collection. thanks!

some bugs and comments:

*) since a couple of days it's not been possible to build tellico directly from the SVN sources. the cmake step fails:

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

i think that the TAGLIB_INCLUDES variable is associated with an optional package (to do with media files), but the way it is referenced in the CMake files doesn't respect this ==>  if you don't have the optional package installed on your system, the make will fail.

also, some comments on the detailed functionality (once you have built it):

*) I have created another field (Editor) formatted as 'Name' and I do indeed get a 'People' pseudo field. However, in the main left-hand window pane, there is no group EMPTY (i.e. where the item has no entry for either Author or Editor). It's quite useful to have this group visible.

*) when you update an entry that changes if it is in a filter (specifically, *removes* it from the filter), the filter contents don't immediately update. they update if you change an entry so it matches the filter.

*) in the entry editor, is it possible to change the order of the individual pages? also, we have lost keyboard shortcuts for fields within each entry editor page.
