How is this coming for Natty? I hope we see it implemented as Banshee
will be default.

This is definately a feature request: a genre filter pane.
The preferences window should allow the user to select the panes he wants to be visible. The options would be: Artist, Album, and Genre. Yes, I know we can use the genre: tag in the search field, but this option is in other players (Rhythmbox, iTunes and Songbird come to mind) and is very useful for creating "on-the-fly" playlist (when a user wants to hear to all the songs in a particular genre). Also, artist and album are not enough when the music library goes beyond a few hundreds of songs, and I'm pretty sure that several users  fall in this category.

This bug has already been treated there, and even a patch has been developed, then there is no reason why this is not implemented already.

Included is a (not so good) mockup of what I'm talking about.
