[Desktop][Podcasts] Filtered by unplayed episodes

I noticed with the latest update that the 'Filtered by' unplayed episodes has been removed. If a podcast has over 100episodes it can be a bit annoying to scroll all the way down to the ep I'm up to. I can sort it from old to new, but I want to hide/archive the eps I've listened to please. Not everyone is up to the latest episode and if you sub to an old podcast with lots of eps, you really need this feature.

Just hitting play from the overview screen will play the latest/oldest (whatever the first file in the list is). If old eps where archived it could play the one I'm up to (as long as it remembers to sort old to new).

Since last version there was a way to see only not listened/not finished episodes of podcasts and now it's gone. Having this Green check icon does not help much the fact that I have to scroll endlessly. Also There was a progress bar and now it is showing only if you play podcast episode.

This is unbelievably frustrating, and I have no idea why Spotify would take away such a useful feature.

With the newes update, it's no longer possible to hide played songs/episodes. This is superannoying! Please bring the feature back

It's also odd that they're not loading podcasts by newest first when you land on the page. It loads the first page, oldest first, for like 100 episodes, and then just stops. It only loads more when I change the sorting. It's like they have pagination, but the application doesn't respect the pagination key to load more results.
