Please add an option for sorting folders (name, date modification), for now only files can be sorted.
Possibilities of folder sorting would be great.

I don't understand exactly what you are asking for. When you configure a sorting based on name you may choose the direction (ascending or descending). When you sort based on name, the folders are systematically shown "before" the files (at least with the default templates). But folders are just sorted like files.
What is true however is that it is not possible to sort folders based on modification date. There is a reason for that: since the introduction of FAL, support for the date of modification on folders has been dropped (or forgotten?) so this extension is simply unable to sort on that inexistant property.
This property is finally available in master branch (see #65165), it will then be possible to do that in TYPO3 v8 but not before.
