Very minor thing, but in 2.2.2 my default sort for devices and backups seems to have got stuck on reversed.

We checked your suspicion and it is correct that it seems different, but the actual change is little different from that.

Up until about a year ago the default sorting for devices in Devices and Backups view was by internal IDs and descending, so your latest added devices would appear first in the list. Then, this was changed from ID sorting to address sorting (one of the reasons was that internal ID can change if a database is migrated for example), so now the first device in the list would be an address starting with "z".

We are going to do two things:
- we will change the default sorting from descending to ascending (I believe this should get into one of the upcoming releases if not to the next release)
- we will add the setting to choose what will be the default sorting parameter into per-user settings we are going to add in the future (no ETA at this moment).
