Sorry, I'm not at my Ubuntu machine right now.  But will that just give 
me a list of what is going to be upgraded?  If it's just the standard 
list in Synaptic all it will tell is what the program is.  I know I can 
get that.. even when I click apply I can get a simple list of what 
packages are going to happen.  I'd like to see something like this.

PPP upgrade to 1.77
+ Added new Foo module resolving a lot of connection issues
+ Fixed Bug #34444 that was causing a lot of crashes.

That way if I'm looking for something I can see if it got fixed.  Or, on 
the other hand if say Evolution was upgraded and it added some new 
options I can say oh.. hey.. they now have a AutoResponder I should go 
try that out!
