Software Log Viewer

PackageKit has always had a log viewer, but I would be the first to admit that it looked shite, and wasn’t really useful for anybody.

I’ve spent a couple of hours, adding more columns and adding a filter facility so that you can narrow down the results to something useful.

Use cases for this tool:

  • Something in yesterdays automatic update broke firefox. What was updated?
  • Did I update firefox last week?
  • (for backends that support rollback) Take me to the snapshot before I installed XFCE

Comments welcome.
