Show Changes over time in the List of Apps
The list of applications is dynamically changing:
- new apps are appearing
- existing apps are disappearing (detection issues)
- for some apps the installed version number is changing (I installed a new version)
- the security state (OK or Insecure) is changing (due to vulnerabilities)
- the recommended version number is changing (new versions are available)
For users it would be helpful to see what data changed since the last visit.
You may highlight the corresponding line with a special color and also write what has changed.
Such information is essential for Administrators that manage multiple computers.
So Admins can see what changes are made on the machine.
For power users this feature is required.
They see what changed are in the list of applications and can post detection issues in the forums.
This way the VulnDetect database also benefits from this feature (the database gets updated).
@Anselm The status update available is just a label like OK.
There should also be a separate column "Update Version"
@OLLI_S But, instead of showing "update available", i would prefer to see the version number of the update.
In the suggestion List of Applications - Improved UI I made a suggestion for a improved user interface that also includes the label New to indicate changes in the list of applications.
If you like the new UI, please upvote it.
If you also implement the new group "Deleted Applications" and show new apps in this group with the Label New then you have marked all changes.
This is a feature that we have discussed internally a couple of times. I find it very likely that we will implement it at some point.
