Overly long string in System Information tab



  • The version update string,

    Version information updated at Tue Sep 25 8:05:04 UTC 2018
    

    is way longer than anything else in the whole "System Information" tab, and affects the formatting of all other items. You can see it when you click the "check" button and the formatting changes while the much shorter "Obtaining update status" is shown.

  • Yes I agree. It could be shortened by changing "Version information updated at" to "Checked at".
    Or I guess it could be on 2 lines.
    Or I'd personally be happy to have the option not to show that info at all, but I guess maybe others find it useful.

    You can disable the Version information completely in the widget settings, or disable only the update check in the update settings. Some RTFM is in order here.

    Thanks, am aware you can disable the version information pane entirely, and also the update check. I don't think I or the OP want to lose that functionality. We are just talking about the length of the "Version information updated......" string. My comment "Or I'd personally be happy to have the option not to show that info at all" referred only to that string itself - not the pane as a whole or the update check functionality.
