The "Version" pull-down menu in Trac has no apparent ordering principle. This should be fixed.

Even better, scrap many of the very old versions, as they're unsupported, anyway. Thanks!

The problem with the ordering is that Trac orders the versions by its associated release-date. However, not all versions have a release-date set (it's a bit of work to find out all historic release dates so I haven't filled in everything yet), in which case non-released versions are put in front. (Note also that version in Trac can be any string, i.e. not necessarily a dotted integer)

Also, I'm afraid deleting old versions from the version table will render the remaining historic Ticket meta-data inconsistent or to the very least, destroy historic information.

Ideally, the version field is used to denote the first version a bug/issue is known to exist in (regardless whether that version is "supported" or not). The milestone is used for declaring the version where the ticket is planned to be or was fixed. So that allows you to see the "life-span" of a bug quite easily right from the ticket-meta data.
