The package selection work a little different in yumex-2.0, than in 
yumex-1.2.

In 1.2:
You have to first select the packages and the add them to the queue.

in 2.0:
The package are added to the queue when you click on the selection 
checkbox, and reversed if you click again.
So 'Select all' & 'Deselect all' don't make a lot of sense, they are 
replaced by
add all:  Add all the packages,  you see in the current view to the queue.
Remove all: Remove all the packages, you see in the current view.
The button make most use when used when with updates.

I don't know what repolist is, but seeing the priorities in the repo 
view is a nice idea, i will put it on the TODO list.
