dired-sort

Sort a directory listing differently.  Dired mode: S

In a dired buffer, this subcommand controls sorting. It prompts you to enter another letter to change the sorting method. Press N, E, S, or D to select sorting by file name, file extension, size, or time and date of modification, respectively. Press U to turn off sorting the next time Epsilon makes a dired listing, and display the file names in the same order they come from the operating system. (You can have Epsilon rebuild the current listing using the R dired subcommand.)

Press + or - at the sorting prompt to sort in ascending or descending order, respectively, or R to reverse the current sorting order. Press <Enter> to sort again using the currently selected sorting order.

Press G at the sorting prompt to toggle directory grouping. With directory grouping, Epsilon puts all subdirectories first in the list, then all files, and sorts each part individually. Without directory grouping, it mixes the two together (although it still puts . and .. first).
