Summary0010419: Allow customized sorting of versions

It would be useful if the Versions sort order could be customized.

Currently versions are sorted based on their release date.

Additional sorting options to be considered: version_compare(), alphanumeric sort

TagsNo tags attached.

If I remember correctly, version sorting is determined by the date/time associated with each version.

Is it possible to change this? Even as a quick hack.. it is more useful to us to have it sorted alphabetically than by the date the release was created.

Check core/version_api.php functions version_get_all_rows* and update the query to order by 'version' instead of 'date_order'. Note that this will likely affect ordering on the roadmap and changelog pages as well.

Sorry for the delay. I have just gotten around to testing the impact of this. I can confirm it does alter the Roadmap as well - this isn't a problem.

BUT this fix does not alter the order that versions appear in on the 'View Issues' page?

However, changing the same in 'version_get_all_rows_with_subs' does seem to have the desired result. Can you advise about this?

Where did it not give the desired result?
A different sorting would be useful for me, too!
