I think it would be really helpful to have a 3rd option when sorting/ordering searching in the Addons section. Currently there are "recent" and "popular"; wouldn't it be nice to have a "new" option as well?
Look in the recent, there are new ones there.
Oh my goodness! It has been a long day at work. I can't believe what I'm reading my original post, lol! Ultimate facepalm!
Of course, there could be a way to track previously downloaded plugins and have a "mark all as downloaded" option.
