Banshee has an option - sort albums by release date, not by name, but turning it on do nothing. All tags are filled correctly. Is at a bug or I miss something?

Banshee's option to "Sort an artist's albums by year, not title" currently affects the sort order in only the full track list. This option does not affect the order of albums in the album list (the grid with all the album covers). This has caused quite a bit of confusion -- see Bug 544758 and its 5 duplicates.

If, however, you mean that turning on that option doesn't change the sort order anywhere -- even in the full track list -- then that is definitely a bug, and you should report it.
