Export/Import and local artist art improvements
#38
OK guys, anyone up for trying out my prototype improved music export? Smile

A pre-PR test build KodiSetup-20170908-32e443c3cd-XMLExport is available on the mirrors. (That is the win64 link but other platforms are similarly named)

Please use a fresh build in portable mode, and give it some music from a test location too in the begining, just to become familiar with what it does. Take it easy please, I don't want tears before bedtime, but the worst case (depending on the options you pick) is it will overwrite your existing nfo files.

Use a simple skin e.g. Estuary or Confluence, but definitely one that doesn't use the (beta?) Skin Helper Service or you may get confused.

Disable cdArt addon, for similar reasons.

There is a new setting - Setting > media > Music > artists folder. Please set this somewhere away from your music files. It is where the artist nfo and art will go, for song artists and other musicians as well as album artists.

Load some music files, scrape at least some artists and albums
Then look at export from Settings > media > Library > Music section.

This is not the completed product, but it is close, so looking forwards to questions and feedback.
