If you want to use claws-contacts, you must to compile it from git
(http://git.claws-mail.org/?p=contacts.git;a=summary) before compiling

>So if I create ~/.contacts a new address book will be placed there?

No. The existing CM addressbook(s) will be placed here.
The default path of the new addressbok in claws-contacts is the "main"
home directory.

>What's the advantage of the new address book, is it shared with other

I don't know, but it works as standalone application also.

>Is there any intention to roll this function into CM's normal release

Good question, but I am not a developer.
