Yes, it would be good to have the creation/upload date listed next to each entry in the list. If I want to roll back to a package I know I installed two Saturdays ago (but don't remember the version number), I have to go by its date-stamp.

Thanks for issue. I`ll check it implementation

Upstream issue:

The way downgrader numerically order package versions is not helpful and can even prevent listing more up-to-date packages. For example, I'm on linux 4.11.2 and I'd like to downgrade to 4.10.9 but downgrade doesn't list it despite it being available on This is happening because the ordering is wrong and assuming 4.10 is less relevant than 4.9, 4.8, etc because 4.10 begins with 4.1.

All the packages available at the archive have upload date, as well as the cached packages. Why not order the listing based on date-time instead of trying to figure out order from version numbers?

Can this application be updated to support QT5.8 and above. Without QT5.8, other application such as Kdenlive, Openshot and others do not work.

It appears that downgrader doesn't always list all the available options (e.g. for the package xf86-video-intel). I am not sure, however, whether this is a bug or a feature. For me downgrade in AUR worked better.

Fixed. Please update

Seems to miss the dependency for git:

==> Building and installing package
==> ERROR: Cannot find the git package needed to handle git sources.
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build downgrader.

After install of git, it makepkgs and installs.
