it would be nice if the date format could be specified in a standard way, i.e. by entering the string "YY.MM.DD - hh:mm"
i'm pretty uncomfortable with the actual format,
a) it's using american style PM/AM (as european i'm not used to that), i'd rather see 21:49 as it is default here.
b) with the slashes its hard for the eye to differentiate the dates quickly
c) i'm not really interested in the seconds
d) i want to see the year first, then month, etc
thanks !

    I'll check this point but I think the date format is selected from the locale name. If it's not the case, then it is a bug...

    OK, I finally implemented this feature. You can now (in version 1.33) change the date format in the Preferences / General tab.
    Type 'man strftime' for the syntax of the date/time format.
    Thanks for your report,
