Description Kriton Kyrimis 2012-07-20 17:46:05 UTC
It used to be that, when entering the month and date in a date field, without entering the year, calc would interpret the input as a date in the current year.

In 3.6 RC1:

* If I enter a date as 31/12, the year is not filled in, and the field is displayed left-adjusted, which means that it is not interpreted as a date. This is quite inconvenient, if a lot of dates have to be entered.

* If I enter a date as 31 Dec, the current year is appended automatically, and the field is displayed right-adjusted, with the date displayed in whatever format I have chosen.
