Editing post makes it reappear on Latest Comments

Seems like the sorting is on last updated, and not the creation date.

That was not true of "Latest Topics" or "Latest Comments" (in the sidebar), but it was true of the "Active Topics" button up top, so I assumed you meant that.
Now it's sorting by latest comment time, descending.

Edited Post appears in Latest Comments

I edited the post, clicked Save, and it appeared in the sidebar under Latest Comments.

Update

Update: The "Latest Topics" list in the forum sidebar now says "NEW" if there's new or updated content in the thread.
