Here it is:
Mainly lacking features in the gtk edition I can think to:
* No versions shown in the list (you've to click on all single packages). This was solved in the first proposal.
* No highlighting of newest/oldest packages (in the qt version: blue -> a new package is available, red -> the installed package is newer than what's in repositories). This was solved in the first proposal, using icons.
* Highest number of clicks to do one task: 1 click to select/lock/update a package in Qt, 2 clicks in the gtk version.
Moreover, it's quite different from the Qt interface, so it makes hard to support people for example on IRC, or to write general tutorials/documentation.

It definitely looks bad, and it doesn't seem to add all the functionalities YaST Software Management has in its Qt version.
Do you have a screenshot of the Qt version to compare with?
I like the fact that the new version has a very clear and big button marked 'Upgrades' personally - but then, anyone who reads my blog knows that that's a bit of a beef with me :) -- James Ogley, openSUSE Member: GNOME Team and Planet SUSE. firstname.lastname@example.org http://opensuse.org/GNOME http://planetsuse.org openSUSE: Get It, Discover It, Create It at http://www.opensuse.org
