Show Additional Package Information

Show Additional Package Information

By default, when using the list view for local and remote sources, a limited set of information is provided. This information is the minimum amount of information that is required to make informed decisions about interacting with the packages that are shown. As a result, when using Chocolatey GUI, you will see the following when using the local source:

Show Additional Package Information Disabled 1

And the following when using a remote source:

Show Additional Package Information Disabled 2

By enabling this feature, you allow the addition of extra package information to be displayed. For example, in the local source view, you will see additional columns for package id and whether or not it is a pre-release package:

Show Additional Package Information Enabled 1

And in the remote source view, it will be rendered as follows:

Show Additional Package Information Enabled 2
