Running Tex4ebook on this minimal example:

\chapter{First chapter}
\chapter{First appendix}

results in an Epub with the appendix preceding the first chapter.

Is this a known issue? Is it possible to get the correct order without manual editing of the epub?

This is because all chapters are extracted to standalone html files by tex4ebook, which is recommended practice for ebooks, because of memory and computing constraints of ebook devices. But appendices were kept in the main html file, which resulted in that they appeared before all extracted chapters.

I hope I've fixed that in the tex4ebook sources now, so appendices should be extracted as well. Please download the current tex4ebook version.

Note that you will get blank first page of your ebook if you extract everything to standalone files, you may use at least \maketitle to put something to the main file.
