I have noticed that the previous triggered 'alarm states' in the list displayed, are sometimes out of chronological date order. Can you explain why? 

The common cause for the problem mentioned is due to incorrect formatting set in the summary format

Please make sure that you have got {Ontime}{Ondate}. And not {Ontime}{date}.

If you have got {Ontime}{date} then the time shown will be correct but the date will change according to the last state change of the alarm.

What this means is the alarm will be in the correct order of date/time stamp and until the next day when (or if) the alarm gets triggered again or changes state.

Please repack and recompile after making the change to the format.If you are using them, you may need to delete your alarm save files (almsav.dat) so that new entries use the update format.
