When clicking on an artist to see all their albums, the albums are sorted alphabetically. I prefer for the albums to be sorted by year, however unfortunately there is no option for this.
The next stable version is a preliminary step toward greater ability to configure the browsing views to the liking of the user.
This is material for the next future version.
Any news about this? This is the main deal breaker for me regarding Elisa. In my case it's not only about display BTW, when I queue an artist in the playlist, I expect the albums to be added by ascending year, not alphabetically.
Sorry, I am kinda late on this. I am trying to clean a lot of old code that is hard to maintain and evolve.
My hope is that I can get flexible views that can be configured by the use to do whatever is needed.
I suppose that will need some work on a configuration UI. Do you have any suggestions ?
I would put it in the existing sorting button in the main view toolbar. Right now that button is a simple toggle to reverse the sort ordering; it would change to display a menu when clicked, offering options for what to sort by (year, name, date added, etc), as well as options to reverse the sort order. Just like Dolphin's existing "Sort By" menu, really. Simply copying that would produce something pretty nice IMO!
I have started to work on that. This is far from done but I will work on this during the next days.
https://invent.kde.org/multimedia/elisa/-/merge_requests/130 is ready for a new review round.
Sort by year is implemented in all views showing tracks and albums.

This MR has been closed. The devs where a dead end.
Following what I have learnt, I am working on https://invent.kde.org/multimedia/elisa/-/merge_requests/162 .
The feature was implemented by the commits in this Merge Request: https://invent.kde.org/multimedia/elisa/-/merge_requests/162
