Hi,

yast2-ncurses-pkg (text-mode package selector) with refactored user interface
will be available in Factory in the next few days. The curious ones can do a
svn checkout in the meantime ;-)
(http://svn.opensuse.org/svn/yast/trunk/ncurses-pkg).

Enough of words, now some pictures:

(internal SUSE page, at the moment, sorry. It seems I'm unable to update old
screenshots @opensuse.org right now)

Some issues (mostly due to not adapting the code to new libzypp yet):
* List of pattern's packages is now empty
* The info whether pattern is installed is not visible
* Languages list is empty
* In repositories filter, empty repository (@system) is always displayed

Last but not least, the new package selector is by no means perfect (though I
tried hard to make it so ;-) ). There is plenty of other bugs and rough
edges, keep reporting them :)
Enjoy!
