I want to ask what´s the status of the most wanted feature #120340: Run
download and install in parallel?
Afaik, Milestone7 should be features freeze(sorry, if i´m wrong and correct
me), but software management still uses traditional behaviour. Can we expect
this feature will be added, or won´t? Or parallel download at least?

As i told you yesterday on IRC, the feature won't be done (it still has
'evaluation' status, not 'implementation' or 'done'). We had other
priorities lately, but the feature is still one of the top on our list.
I hope the voters can understand that.

Watch also (but keep in mind that
that's not a firm plan, but rather an outline of the way we want to go).

If there is no plan to use it, could you change default behaviour to
"DownloadInAdvance" in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf?

I would vote for this one.

Also, please do not cross-post to multiple mailing lists - it's
contra-productive (where is one supposed to reply?). If you want to
catch more eyes, choose the more crowded one for questions like this.
