Q: Does iTunes 7.4 finally fix the problem with sorting numbers last?
A: Unfortunately, no, this behaviour has not changed.
As we discussed in our Secrets and Features of iTunes 7.4, not only has this behaviour not changed, but in fact appears to be a deliberate change on Apple’s part at this point.
We agree with the many iLounge readers who feel that this behaviour is counter-intuitive to the way that most users expect content to be sorted, and certainly hope that Apple will consider changing it back. At this point, however, there does not seem to be any evidence that this is going to happen.
