Automatic mirror sorting in 2019.10.29 release

One of the feature missing in new AL-Installer is automatic mirror sorting. It was present in 2019.1.20.Without this feature installation is pretty slow as it downloads package from an abrupt mirror i guess.Sometimes it sorts the mirror,sometime its not.I wish to have it back in the installer.simply bring the option back please

It’s always done in the background after mounting, same with the base system unpacking. Anything I can do in the background is done as soon as possible while the user is still making choices. I can’t speak for everyone but the latest version is about 2-5min faster than last mainly just due to this.

If you’re fast enough you can beat it to the final step and you’ll be prompted that a background install process is still running.
