FileVoyager 23.8.26 released!

We’re excited to announce the release of FileVoyager version 23.8.26!

We’ve added support for Logical Ordering (or Natural Sorting) in addition to the classic alphabetical order. You can configure FileVoyager to use the Logical Order or not.

At first glance, sorting files or strings seems straightforward. But there’s a key distinction between “alphabetical” and “natural” sorting.

🔠 Alphabetical Sorting: This method looks at strings purely character by character. So, if you have a list like [“item1”, “item11”, “item2”], alphabetical sorting would order them as:

  1. “item1”
  2. “item11”
  3. “item2”

🌿 Logical Ordering or Natural Sorting: This method treats chunks of digits as a single number. It’s closer to how humans would manually sort things. So, with our previous example, natural sorting would give:

  1. “item1”
  2. “item2”
  3. “item11”

While the difference can seem subtle, it’s essential when dealing with file names, product versions, or any other strings where numeric sequences matter. Always choose the sorting method that best fits the context!

There are also other optimisations and fixes, of course. We hope these new features make FileVoyager even more useful for our users. As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions for future updates.

So, hurry up, and download the latest version!
