Timestamp format string
Since version 2.2 you can set a format string for representing date and time.
A formatting string is similar to the printf formatting string (from C/C++ programming language). Formatting codes, preceded by a percent (%) sign, are replaced by SecureSafe. Other characters in the formatting string are copied unchanged. See the following list for details:
Abbreviated weekday name
Full weekday name
Abbreviated month name
Full month name
Date and time representation appropriate for locale
Day of month as decimal number (01 – 31)
Hour in 24-hour format (00 – 23)

Day of year as decimal number (001 – 366)
Month as decimal number (01 – 12)
Minute as decimal number (00 – 59)
