Tim has been very busy with this :)

OK, there is now a new version of yumex available:


it is in the testing repo:

yum --enablerepo c4-testing update yumex

The above command should get it for you if have the testing repo

If you don't have the testing repo file on your PC, you can put the file
CentOS-Testing.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/


This version fixes several items, including:

1.  Groups now function properly.
2.  Items in the action queue are now marked in the Install, Remove and
Update windows.
3.  YumEx now writes to the /var/log/yum.log when taking actions.
4.  Yum Plugins work with this version.

If you are using any version of YumEx with CentOS, I recommend this
version instead.

Thank you very much Tim.
