Would be nice to have such a feature
As an alternative; Opening the app store form within your modeler, shows you a list sorted by update date,
Thanks for the feedback. This feature does exist and I agree it is well hidden at the moment:
If you're logged in with your MXId account (enter App Store from Launchpad) you can navigate to 'Featured' -> View all. On that page, or from any other category, you can apply a sort filter.
I'll make sure a story about this will be added to the backlog.
