Dear milestone testers!

3. A "History of changes" box: that is accessible from either the
top-menu "Extras" or from the "Summary of changes" box. This shows the
entire history of installed/upgraded/uninstalled packages, and
subscribed/removed repositories, categorised conveniently by date (the
full history-viewer in all its glory has not made it into M5, it should
be in factory [5] soon however and you can already try it from svn [2]
if feeling adventurous :) ). You can select a package and hit the
"jump-to" button to switch to the package in the main interface and
uninstall/re-install a removed package from there. This is in response
to feature # 305859. It enables the user to look up a package installed,
say, recently that he/she does not like or finds unuseable and remove it
and the dependencies it pulled in easily. This should go extremely well
if the Unneeded packages group is implemented later [6].

The recent factory sync has brought in an updated YaST2-gtk interface
with the history manager now complete feature-wise. Please do test and
let us know your thoughts, good, bad and ugly :), on the interface.
