Bug Description

I am running the calibre server (3.46) on a Linux system (Manjaro Linux).

An android app I am using to access the Calibre server does a multiword search by calling http://<ip>:8080/opds/search/<word1>+<word2>. For example: http://<ip>:8080/opds/search/Jane+Austen

But it comes back with a "404 Not Found" even though there are books in there that should match that criterion.

If I do http://<ip>:8080/opds/search/"Jane Austen". I get the result I would expect.

This seems to be a bug? I would expect that "+" should work as it is a common way to implement this type of functionality in a URL.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.
