Would like to propose ordering Semester filter dropdown on the courses tab by reverse chronological order rather than alphabetically, if possible.

Good catch. When we redesigned all the directories to use the same filter structure as the Courses directory, I mistakenly overgeneralized the way the filter markup was generated so that all filter options were sorted alphabetically. This isn't appropriate for some of the filter types, so in I've switched it so that each filter is responsible for its own sort order. This will be part of the next release.

Thanks, Luke and Boone. Are you also seeing the blank checkbox? See attached - what does that mean?

It appears that the first few dozen courses created on the Commons incorrectly had a null value recorded for their course term, and that these were being included when generating a list of terms for the dropdown. I've made a correction in so that they'll be excluded in the future.
