Description misterm 2005-10-05 12:01:10 UTC
[ BUILD # : 5.0 beta ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.4.2_xx ]

Modules have been removed from the Options window and replaced by the new Module Manager window. However, the ability to sort modules has been removed as well and it was very useful in order to locate a module by "name", i.e., org.openide.something. This feature should be added again.

It's already implemented. Try invoke Sort By Name from a popup menu, either
Module node or Category node as well.
Comment 2 misterm 2005-10-05 13:37:10 UTC
Actually I want to be able to sort by package, i.e, org.openide.amodule, not by 
its display name.
Comment 3 Jiri Rechtacek 2007-05-21 10:49:49 UTC
Old Module Manager (part of Autoupdate) was moved into contrib/modulemanager.
