As has been discussed to death all over several mailing lists for the past
six months, panel applets are not allowed in GNOME 3. However, it is in the
plans (possibly for 3.2) to introduce a desktop widget system--or something
like it--akin to desktop widgets in other OS's; it will not be returning in
the form of a panel applet, though. The widget plans just didn't make it in
time to get included in 3.0.

The date/time widget is missing time zones, as well. See the plans here:

If you want more information, a simple web-search will turn up all kinds.
