Author/Date Date Sort

With dates presented in D/M/YYYY H:M:S format, sorting on the date is not as useful as I'd like. Could it be changed to YYYY/M/D H:M:S format? Or alternatively could you add an option for the user to set the date format?

The date format doesn't effect sorting at all. As the dates aren't stored as text internally.

Hmmmm... When I click the date column header the file are sorted in some way, but not by date/time. Here's the dates from the first few files:

29/3/2004
29/2/2004
28/8/2004
28/6/2004
23/2/2004
22/7/2004
22/6/2004
21/1/2004
20/5/2004
20/3/2004
18/9/2004
...

Looks like alphabetical to me.

I'm running:

on WinXP SP1 (waiting on SP2 for a bit longer).

I don't see that at all. Maybe I've fixed it since that release.

Isn't 1.83 the latest available release?

Yes it is, but I'm looking at the development build (whats in version control) which is a little ahead of the last release.

Well then, the next obvious question would be ... :

When is a new version going to be available?
Or... how about letting me test a dev version?

I have 2 smallish bugs to fix and then I can release a new build. So relitively soon.

Just for the record, it looks like it is currently sorting by Year, Day, then Month. Looking forward to trying the new version.

Thanks

Version 1.84 works the same as 1.83 as far as this date sort issue is concerned.
