New view in Integrity / Scrutiny groups links by status

I don't know how it's taken so long to do this (Integrity has been around since 2007)
Some people are interested in the redirect code and like to sort those out. Other people just care about the final status of the page after redirection. No problem, choose initial status, final status or the combination which you're used to seeing.
The 'bad links only' button will work on this view just the way you're used to. This view can be exported, perhaps you want to expand to show just one  particular status, or just 5xx codes for example, before exporting.

Finally, one more thing is worth mentioning here as we've touched on redirects. Some people are tasked (or task themselves) with making a list of all redirected urls (3xx). Integrity, Integrity Plus and Scrutiny will achieve the task using the techniques above. But the most effective way to achieve this is to use Scrutiny's filter button for 'redirects'. Shown below is the flat view sorted by status but the new 'by status' view will do just as well. When exported to csv, any filter or search will be respected.
