Indicator Datetime nabs some natty new choices

Ubuntu 11.04′s panel clock Indicator – Indicator Datetime – has received a handful of new features in a recent update.

A location pin board, similar to that used during initial installation of Ubuntu, allows you to visually set your time zone; a speedy  improvement over list trudging.

A wealth of customization options are also present in the alpha update, letting you opt to display: -

  • The weekday
  • The date
  • Time format (12/24 hour)
  • Seconds

Whilst the list of ‘clock menu’ options includes: -

  • Show a monthly calendar
  • Show week numbers in monthly calendar
  • Display evolution calendar events
  • Times in other locations

Previous method of changing indicator-datetime’s layout involved using dconf-editor. Now tailoring the clock to tick to your beat is never more than check-box away.
