A recent update to Ubuntu 12.10 has brought subtle improvements to the default “date and time” applet.

The Indicator Datetime menu has supported the listing of “other locations” for several releases, but it’s only with this update in Ubuntu 12.10 that an options to choose how they are sorted has been available.

In Ubuntu 12.04 timezones listed in the menu are sorted alphabetically – a logical, but not always helpful, solution.

For Ubuntu 12.10 an option to list locations by time has been added to the timezone configuration menu, thus letting you choose your preferred layout.
