My fault :)
I was searching the current selection...
It works in the entire library.
Thanks!

It is implemented.
i.e.
' '=AND, ""=exact, ';'=OR

When I search for "radiohead computer" (without the quotes) I receive all tracks from the album "OK Computer"

Are you searching "Entire library" or "Current selection" ?

Starting from MM B4 this logical operators will work also in case of "Current selection" searching.

Searching for multiple terms in MM3b3

Hi, I hoped that the search in MM3 would behave like the popular search engines and search for all single words in the search term.
There is some thread asking for this feature in MM2 and the answer was that it will be introduced in MM3.

Still, when I search for "radiohead computer" (without the quotes) I get no results, although I assumed to receive all tracks from the album "OK Computer".

Generally I'd find it more intuitive to do the search like this (Google-way):
foo bar baz => "foo" AND "bar" AND "baz"
"foo bar baz" => "foo bar baz"
foo OR bar => "foo" OR "bar"

So how is it intended to be? Are there any plans to change the search behavior?
