Daylight Saving Time Rules Fixed for New Zealand

Send Article to a Friend

Despite the kerfuffle over support for worldwide daylight saving time rule changes in various versions of Mac OS X (see Andrew Laurence's "Daylight Saving Time May Bite the Out-of-Date" (2007-01-29) for the start of our coverage), it appears that Apple missed the new rules in New Zealand in even the most recent versions of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. New Zealand's new rules take effect at 2 AM on 30-Sep-07, so if you're in New Zealand and want your Mac to honor the new rules, download Glenn Anderson's free New Zealand 2007 Daylight Savings Time Update for Mac OS X (33K download). It works with Mac OS X 10.4.10, may work with 10.4.9, and probably won't work with 10.4.8 or earlier. Glenn, who's best known in the Mac world as the author of Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS), has also now released a version of his daylight saving time utility for Mac OS X 10.3.9, along with a Daylight Savings Editor for Mac OS 9, both available at the same page.
