Wow. That looks fantastic. What service is it actually using? MusicBrainz? Last.FM? Or Soundamus?

i've added soundamus - you need to enable and enter your soundamus id in the Internet & Services preferences tab.
For matches from soundamus, clicking on the album will take you to the soundamus web page.
It also allows you to sort date into descending/ascending order and i've removed "various artists" when restricting to artists in your library

How do you apply for a Soundamus account?  I only tried my Last.fm name

there is a Create Account button in the preferences page which takes you to the appropriate soundamus page. If you already did that step earlier, just enter your last.fm id in the id box in the preferences

you need to go through the steps on their web-page. It starts by requiring you to enter artists - i your case i expect you would click the last.fm icon. then it asks you to create an account

their account creation process is not the best.
- either go directly to thei website: http://www.soundamus.net/
- or click the Create Account button in MB in the Internet & Services preferences page which will take you to the same page
- it asks you to enter some artists first, by clicking a link 'enter your favourite artists' or click the last.fm icon if you use last.fm
- after entering the artists it will ask you to create an account

using the account id you created, enter that username into the id text box in the MusicBee preferences page

if you cant figure it out its probably best you approach the soundamus fourm which has a link on the bottom of their page

i've tweaked the Upcoming Releases layout in the Internet & Services preferences. No need to download again if you have the link just above

Some things i noticed:

The "services" node and "upcoming releases" in the left sidebar can be renamed by F2 - i don't think this is supposed to be possible

there is a "refresh" button on the page. why not use the refresh button that's on the adress bar (which doesn't do anything on the releases page)

non western characters are shown as boxes on my system
