The recent updates block looks much better with the version number changes on a seperate line.

Thanks the_watcher for recommending this and for Andrew for implementing!
is it stealth? ;)

My idea was to bring updates to users attention which are "victims" (like e.g. Q-Dir - presently at page 9) of the update-rule. So please think of to skip the rule at this side bar.
But how to indicate the update if there are no version changes? Just a [AppName] - Updated by [UserName]? What do the rest of you think?
I was thinking of version updates, only. Little "cosmetic" changes (like a new/better icon or changes from "bad" to "good") are not so important (... but necessary).

OK. Done. For example, in the new listing, QDir is listed twice after the "update rule" check is skipped.

Indeed, the recent updates look very good! Glad to help :)
And seems better without the update rule.

Can i make one more suggestion?
how about displaying the version numbers in a smaller font size? So that it will span across a single line, not two
(Got the idea from huge chrome version)

Thanks for the update.

Chrome gargantuan version number is an obvious candidate for smaller font, Good idea.
