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

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?

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.

Ján, is this done for 11.4? If not, please close this feature or move to 'openSUSE Distribution' if it's planned to get implemented in the future.
