Sort by Most Downloads not Working?

description

I'm using the latest version of nuget on VS 2013. I did a search on "dependency" and tried sorting by Most Downloads , but it still displays the results by relevance. Sorting on publish date, name, and relevancy all work correctly. Was trying to see what the most used dependency injection frameworks were.

Because "Most Downloads" is based on all-time downloads, including package restores, the numbers don't necessarily translate to "most popular now." The new NuGet search services uses relevance along with recent installs/updates to determine what's most popular now. So the results you're seeing are intentional now.
