Package: gnome-apt
Version: 0.4.4-2
Severity: wishlist


Thanks for the much improved gnome-apt.
Here is a small suggestion for improvements. gnome-apt, like aptitude
and others, suffers from the problem of how to fit all the info in the
package lists. For me backend of version numbers is invariably clipped
because the version number column has been squeezed too much.

A few suggestion to save some space:
 - Replace installation status with an icon, and/or abbreviations. 
  "Not Installed" is just way too long.
 - Show (by default) only the new/to be installed version number, but 
   highlight the digits that are differnt from the previous numbers.
   That way it is immediately obvious whether just the debian version
   changed, it was a point release or a major jump, which is all I
   usually care about.
