Gallery Order for 3.5 beta

The media uploader has always taken a list of files, say 101 to 150, and displayed them with 101 on the bottom, and 150 on top in the media list (last uploaded first). It's backwards from the way the files will be used, but hasn't mattered much, as the gallery shortcode allowed orderby name. Now with the new gallery manager to re-order images they are all displayed in that order, with the last file uploaded coming first.

FYI, Koopersmith has commented on this matter during the weekly UI chat back in September:

"I can tell you that we’ll probably do something with the exif data. Whether or not we deal with raw order changes will probably end up being the debate here."

And I share willwenzel's opinion: the default result for numbered images goes against the most common use cases (chronological narration).

Is this still an issue?

I wonder if we need some kind of "reverse this order" link.

Replying to nacin:

It seems that beta 3 has it fixed! No change needed.

This display issue appears to be fixed with the new 3.5 uploader.

If I upload a sequence from 101 to 150, at the end of the uploading process, the interface displays them in the "logical" order: 101 at the top, 150 at the bottom.

If I do "Insert into post" or "Create a new gallery" > "Insert gallery", the images keep that same order.

The only problem I encounter: when I select the same images from the Media Library, they are now presented in reverse order (150 to 101, by file ID). If I select them and "Create a new gallery", the interface doesn't offer the "Ascending" or "Descending" shortcuts: the only option is to reorder the images by drag and drop.
