The older version is still available for people who don't like GUIs.
WordPress allows one to sort category listings in several ways: hierarchical, non-hierarchical, by name, by ID, and so on, but one thing it does not allow for is a sort order driven, not by name or ID. but by relationships defined in other than database terms. Human relationships — such as News, Weather, Sports.
That's what this plugin does. It allows one to define the display order of one's category listing, including, if desired, hierarchical relationships that may or may not have anything to do with those set up within the WP administration interface.
