After installing an additional board pack on my Windows 8 system, I'm noticing that the board-sets on the Select Board-Set screen do not appear in any given order. Aren't the board-sets supposed to be sorted in a chronological order, by when they were added to the Boards directory, or something like that ?

Here's what the Select Board-Set screen looks like after installing Board Pack 2:

They're done in alphabetical order of the .bdz files in the Boards directory. You can shift them around by renaming them.

The only exception is the "Hide and Glow Seek", which is never first. Since this set has a lot of invisible blocks, it could be a little infuriating to a new player, so they wanted to make sure it wasn't the first set listed. However, looking through the code, this only applies to the full version of that set, not the demo version.

Ah. Thanks for pointing that out ! Everything makes sense now.
