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.
I don't see that having multiple versions of the same package in the list is good; it just gets crowded and unmanageable.
That's not what I'm asking for. The installer should show the current installed version, and offer the possibility to select the most recent available, as the qt version does. This adds just two columns to the view, not elements to the list.
* 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.
Errr... Newest packages are listed in the 'Upgrades' view. Again, I'm not a fan of having the list stuffed with multiple versions of packages, graced with colourful icons.
Again, see above. Have you ever used the Qt version of the installer? Please, check it.
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.
If writing a tutorial is all you worry about, I'd volunteer to write one. It'd be a heck of a lot easier than writing a how-to for the old QT-GUI.
You don't absolutely get the point. When you write documentation for SUSE you've to manage two different installer interfaces, which is, to be honest, wrong in principle. Moreove you need to know two interfaces when you offer support. The result is that everyone is suggesting to disable Yast-gtk and use Yast-qt. Plain simple, and with a lot of good reasons.
With kind regards, Alberto
