    In the Web UI

    In Browse Artists the first item is All Albums
    In Browse Albums the first item is All Songs
    In Browse Genre the first item is All Artists
    In Browse Years the first item is All Albums

    Now this seems pretty inconsistent but in all case seems to build a playlist (assuming that shuffle is off) ordered by Artist - Album - Track Number

    Wouldn't it make more sense if for example,

    The Browse Artists first item was All Artists and built a playlist ordered by Artist names
    The Browse Albums first item was All Albums and built a playlist ordered by Album Titles
    The Browse Genre first item was All Genres and built a playlist ordered by Genre (oh the happy hours working my way from Alternative to Zydeco :-) )
    The Browse Years first item was All Years and built a chronological playlist

    I'd have thought this shouldn't be too difficult with the new database backend

    One more thing, how come the 'All' Item is at the bottom of the list on the player and at the top on the web UI?

    I'm pretty good with Delphi but this Perl leaves me baffled :-)

    Glad to see that I'm not the only Delphi Developer out here.
