Adding Filters in UI (Plugins)

Searching for any particular plugins shows the related plugins based on the keywords, out of which some old and unmaintained plugins also appear in the results which might be a vulnerability issue for their users.

Possible Solution:
Adding Filters to categorize the results for searchers query:

  1. Latest to Oldest
  2. Oldest to Latest
  3. Most Downloads
  4. Least Downloads
  5. Highest Rated
  6. Lowest Rated

Adding the filters, rather than completely changing the way the results appear (such as: showing the most updated results first, etc) would be more useful, and it would be more fair for all publishers/plugin-maintainers.

Possible Improvements:
Reducing the risk of downloading incompatible old, untrusted, unmaintained plugins leading to vulnerability or other risks in website (business :D).

This will be indeed a great addition to enhance the experience of plugin searching and finding the right plugin for a website. A small filter icon beside the search bar can do this job nicely. When clicked on the filter icon the options will appear. Here is a sample UI I have made:
