Re: [guide-user] Display time

Not sure in your version, but in the last version in the menu display
legend you may select the time zone an also a second time.
For example I have in my legend (19 april 2012 version) this two lines :
5 june 2012 20:20:08 EDT
6 june 2012 0:20:07 UT1

Did you get the last update ?
