In an upcoming revision could you please include more date formats of the form

dd mm yy

as

mm/dd/yy is DEEPLY wrong to cultures not brought up with it and it also scrambles the significance of fields being neither most significant to least nor vice versa.

Perhaps the true way to solve this is instead of having a date-time listbox in the project settings dialog, split that in two so the date format and the time format can be chosen separately, and allow either but not both fields to be null.

For instance there is no date format that contains dd mm yy and time.

Some other date formats that would be great to have would be

Julian Day
The old Data General / Vax/VMS format 20-Sep-06 as this is confusion free and compact.
yyyy/xx/xx because everyone would think that would be yyyy/mm/dd
