opensuse updater has a ZENWorks backend, and you can configure it to show
packages too (as it is just a KDE integrated version of the Zen Updater). But
then you have to use it with Zenworks daemon. Note that there are some bugs and
you have to auhtenticate as root manually for now.

opensuse updater has also a zypp backend. This was done in reaction of
community request that lot of people don't have the use case or need to run
Zenworks daemon, so the zypp backend access the system directly and show
available patches (replicating the functionality of the old susewatcher. It
could be extended to show packages now, but you are reporting a enhancement as
a bug.

If you want the zen behaviour, use the Zenworks backend of OpenSUSE updater. If
you want the old susewatcher (lighter) behaviour, use the default backend, or
wait while this backend gets that feature (unlikely after the beta1 freeze).
