All registred Packages can be viewed on this Packages overview list screen. Only basic information is shown so you can identify Package at a glance. Information necessary for quickly identifying packages are package name, assembly, version, package path, and note. The assembly and version help to identify the package group, the "same" package since each publish from the Visual Studio generates a new package. Overview will be by default ordered by Name. There is a possibility to change the order of all columns descending or ascending.
