Description Amadeus 2005-09-22 19:30:43 EDT
Some times new packages are added to the repository, and yum ten writes

Added 35 new packages, deleted 0 old in 2.58 seconds

But what are these packages?

yum --list

gives a list of all the packages, but in alphabetical order, not by added date.

So I see two possible solutions
(a) --sort=date that works with --list
(b) --latest-packages

It would be a very useful feature, as it is likely that users would like to
install some of these new programs.

check out the docs:

yum list recent

that should list the most recently added packages based on the package's timestamp.
