Right now YAM always displays the date with a "modified" AmigaDOS format "13-Oct-02 10:25". YAM somehow strips out the seconds and I dunno why this was done. If I now going to change this to plainly use the Locale defined date string this would probably look strange for many ppl. For example, I liste the difference: 13-Oct-02 10:25 - actual YAM display 13-Oct-02 10:25:30 - _real_ AmigaDOS display (without striping the secs) 13.10.2002 10:25:30 - Germany locale preference for displaying the date 10/13/2002 10:25 pm - US local perference display. So, as you can imagine this could look "ugly" for some people who are living in countries with "weird" locale perference and perhaps some ppl are already used to the actual AmigaDOS format. Even if I know that introducing optionality could be bad, I am actually thinking about making the settings of the DateString optional to the user. IMHO it would be good to give the user the choice in which format he wants to have the date displayed in the listview. By default YAM should display the Locale default, but giving the user the choice to switch back to the AmigaDOS like display with/without displaying the seconds.
