Hi, does anyone know why is it that, across the board, regardless of the chosen language (at least within the ones I have tested), the date format is the US format (mm/dd/yyyy) instead of the one that language would use?

Ditto for the decimal separator. The period (.) is the default rather than the comma which is much more common in Europe. 

Yes, I know it is very simple to change via Settings but somehow it should not be a required task,

Should this be reported as a bug? I remember that in 6.1 (do not quite recall if with 7.0), once you loaded en_UK you got the European date format (just like when you loaded any Spanish translation.
