Description:
It would be useful for zypper lu to show security updates in red/bold
fonts, to make them prominent, especially as colors are already in
zypper version 1.2.0 according to
http://jniq.blogspot.com/2009/06/colors-in-zypper.html

I don't think that zypper has this knowledge as part of zypper lu. Jan,
correct?

No, not in lu. lp (list-patches) has this information. It also shows
the update category in one of the columns:
$ LANG=en zypper lp

Repository │ Name │ Version │ Category │ Status

openSUSE 11.1 Updates │ ghostscript-devel │ 877 │ security │ needed

Yes, i guess highlighting the 'security' rows with a different color
might be nice, but i'm afraid i won't have time to code it for 11.2.
OTOH i would welcome a patch :O) One needs to adapt current Table.*
code to support colored rows and then color the appropiate rows in the
lp table in update.cc.

This is in implementation - is it done for 11.3?

+ #4: Ján Kupec (jkupec) (2010-05-27 14:51:19) (reply to #3)
+ No, and i probably won't have time to do this for 11.3 after all,
+ although there's still a chance to make it during June in time for
+ RC1.
