improvement of spatial selection

basically something similar to ArcGis 'select by location', where you
are able to:
1. select features in multiple layers
2. select using a buffer without having to create buffers first (eg select features within a distance of selected features of another layer)
(or should this be two seperate tickets?)

Hello, bug triage...
still no way to make a spatial selection on multiple layers in QGIS 2.13 master. In the ArcGIS implementation, there is a checkable list of all the opened layers on the MXD (project). This list is for target layers (what you want to have selected at the end). So in ArcGIS you can make multiple selection requests (one for each target layer) on the same source layer with only one tool. This is useful because for the moment in QGIS, you have to make each request manually.
For buffer selection, I suggest that you use a Processing model with a "Fixed distance buffer" operation on the source layer followed by a "Select by location".
When the multiple selection will be implemented (perhaps in Processing tool first), we could close this feature request...
