I'd like to know which new packages (brand new, not the updated ones) have appeared in my installed repos. Just in case there can be something useful :)

I guess it should be a simple bash script to list-sort-diff. But maybe, there're some better solutions?


Aptitude enter image description here has a section for “New packages”, listing all the packages that appeared since you last cleared the list. Press F to clear the list.
