    The update applet in openSUSE 11.1 uses a PackageKit backend by default.
    Unfortunately it does not seem to support showing full package updates
    (optional updates or "Upgrades"), rather it only displays security
    updates ("Patches"). To change the behavior to what you want, do the
    following:

    1. Install the Zypp backend for the updater applet. The package is
    named "kde4-kupdateapplet-zypp"

    2. Right-click the updater applet in the system tray & select
    "Configure Applet"

    3. Change the backend from "PackageKit Plugin" to "ZYpp Plugin"

    4. Check the option box for "Show available upgrades when backend
    provides them (for experts only)"

    5. Right-click the updater applet and select "Check Now"


    The updater applet should then display both the Patches and Upgrades
    tabs. If not, you can close the applet and run it again or restart the
    machine entirely.

    The default backend for the updater is now packagekit, which supports
    only updates, not upgrades. To enable the upgrade feature, you must
    install kde4-kupdateapplet-zypp, then configure the applet to use zypp
    as the backend.

    Is it just me, or does the applet provide less information than in
    11.0?
