Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

s-c 3.0.2

Open the history pane of software-center. Note that all transactions post 28-ish July have the correct package names. Note that all transactions pre 28-ish July have version number mess in the pkgname field.

Verification for Maverick.

With 3.0.5 there no version at all in the history pane. Is it what is expected ?

Looking at the code I guess so. But it is a useful information for upgrades and installations of packages to known exactly when and _what_ has changed and this looks like a usability regression.

Please confirm before marking as verification-done.

Sorry, I looked at the code and compared before and after and I have no version info with 3.0.4 too. That is not desired, but at least 3.0.5 is not a regression compared to 3.0.4

Following discussion on irc: The change in the display of the version string occurred during July 31rst where part of the updates shows a version and the other part doesn't (cf screenshot) So, from July 31rst to today, there's no change for the users and that's not a regression since that's already the way 3.0.4 is working but it needs to be improved in natty.

I'm marking this report as verification-done.
