I have a number of versions defined for a project. In the roadmap view, I'd like to have them displayed in "Release Date" order. They currently seem to be displayed in the reverse of the order they are placed in the "Manage Versions" screen. Seems a bit random ...
Frankly the Roadmap is doing what it is expected to do, as per the order in which you have kept in the versions in 'Manage Versions'. If you need it in the order of 'Release Date' (which in my opinion should also be of the same order), you need to re-order the version in the manager versions page.
This is indeed a bug but there is a workaround. When the version records are first added, they don't have an explicit sort order. They will appear in the order they were entered on the admin screen, but in reverse on the scrum board, project overview, etc.
However, if you physically use the drag-drop functionality in admin to move the versions into the correct order (you will have to touch all of them) then they will retain the ordering you set in the admin.
The bug is that the default sorting within the admin is different form the sorting on the other screens.
Update: Apparently I was fooled - only the Overview/Versions panel shows it in the correct order. But everywhere else it does display it in reverse order regardless on if they are newly added or rearranged manually.
The rendering is as follows:
This is a bug, we are on version 6.2
