Very good work !

One Small suggestion, if possible at all, I've like 3 principal folders, like Downloads, Series, Movies. For Series ans Movies, need alphabetical order, but in the downloads, would like to see it by Date ... does somebody else think it's important ? Cheers

I do not think that would be possible unless you create 2 profiles and have one set to sort by name and the other by date. Which IMO will become a PITA.

A far easier but not full solution is inside your downloads folder create other folders such as January, February, March etc and place the downloads by month you download into the appropriate folders. Or if you download hundreds of files daily name folders such as 20160108 (IE <<< Jan 8th 2016) The other way you can do it is 4 folders for each month IE Jan Week 01, Jan Week 02 etc etc.

The downside to this is it obviously depends on you maintaining your downloads folder and copying the files into the appropriate folders. It will allow you to have one folder sorted by date (kinda) though.

I prefer alphabetical. I usually know what my new downloads are and when they were downloaded.

This is not a bug. There's a minimum number of translations that's required for languages to show up in the list. Currently this is at 20%, although I think we should raise it some in the future. The idea is that when too little of the language is translated, it's more annoying than useful to users. But, I can see that we have gotten quite a few Hungarian translations already (it's currently 43% translated), so it will be in the list in the next release.

It's only supposed to show up until you select something. What are you selecting?
