Search results order

It looks like the search functionality returns results in chronological order, i.e. newest last. Is it possible to reverse this? Our users mostly look for the most recent stuff first.

i struck this feature the other day as well and found adding a date aspect helpful...

Sorry, I'm mistaken - it looks as though the order is not chronological or reverse chrono. My screenshot:

it's ugly eh. thanks for bringing it up, I'm working on an improvement.

The results are ordered by a relevancy score from the full-text search we do.. but I'm not happy with the quality of the results just yet.
