[Closed] Unable to sort updates in PortableApps Platform 13.0 (Win7/x86_64)

I applied an update to PortableApps Platform 13.0, and now appear to be unable to sort the available updates. Can anyone else confirm the behavior, and if this is a bug?

Portable Apps Platform 13.0 (Win7/x86_64)
Portable Apps Installer (3.1.1)

(Please let me know if you need additional information.)

4 built-in sorts, Bug that allowed clickable sort is fixed

You can sort by new releases, latest releases, title, and category via the Apps menu within the PortableApps.com Platform. The columns themselves previously had clickable sorting enabled due to a bug in the component that displays the listview. We had the component set not to allow clickable sort since it doesn't work right, but the broken component enabled it anyway. That bug is fixed in 13.0. The only other things you could sort by would be description which doesn't serve much purpose and download/install size which didn't work right since 3MB would show as bigger than 29MB since it was a basic alphabetical sort.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Sorting updates

Thank you for the reply, and for the effort you and others have put into this project to make it so useful and successful!

I agree that being able to sort by those items for obtaining new apps is useful, and that when looking at available updates sorting by description makes little sense; however, I did find it useful at times to be able to sort available updates by size (even if with a basic alphabetical sort).
