Bug: sort by "date" and sort by "feed/date" are the same

I want to have my audio items sorted by date so that newer items are at the bottom, but items are always sorted by feed first so that newer items from feeds that appear towards the top of my feed list are always shown towards the top of my playlist.

I've tried switching between "date" sorting and "feed/date" sorting and it looks the same - there is no change in the order of items on the playlist. For example - if I have two feeds with weekly releases for which I have 3 downloaded items for each feed, both "date" and "feed/date" sorting sort these as A1,A2,A3,B1,B2,B3.

I do have an issue for this...

If it's ok to contact you via email, let me know. I'd like to get your database to try to reproduce it. I haven't been able to get it to occur on any of my devices.

After all the back and forth in the email, I didn't hear from you again. I upgraded to the latest version - 1558, but I don't see the fix we've discussed there.

Are there any updates on this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Access to new beta

I don't seem to have access to beta downloads - when I choose "DoggCatcher Beta" under "Forums" I get "Access Denied".

Thanks! I've installed the latest beta and it works just fine now: I can listen to my podcasts in the order god intended ;)

Thanks a lot for the fix!

Sorry for the late reply - I was mostly dead all week ;-)

Yes, please contact me by email. I'd love to help sort out this problem (pun intended :-) ).

Also, basically on the same note - I'm really missing the item's date in the playlist or feed display: I normally just like to know from when is the item I'm listening to as I listen to news podcasts, but often very late - maybe even two weeks late, but also if it wasn't that obvious in my playlist because I had multiple items from the same feed grouped together, I would never know that I'm not listening to them in the chronological order.
