Advisory: RHEA-2011:1560-2
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-12-06
Last updated on: 2011-12-06

Details

An updated perl-Date-Manip package that upgrades the Date::Manip module to
upstream version 6.24 is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Date::Manip module provides a mechanism for Perl scripts to perform common
date or time operations, such as comparing two timestamps or parsing
international times.

This update adds the following enhancement:

* Among other flaws, the previous version of the perl-Date-Manip package
included outdated time zone definitions and an old API that is now considered
deprecated. This update upgrades the perl-Date-Manip package to upstream version
6.24, which provides up-to-date time zone definitions and version 6 of the API.
Users are still able to use the old API version 5 by explicitly using the
Date::Manip::DM5 module. (BZ#672934)

All users of perl-Date-Manip are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which adds this enhancement.
