We continue to make progress testing TFS for the upcoming Daylight Savings Time changes. In an earlier post, I included details and links to information about the change and its affect on other Microsoft software. Our testing has uncovered the following 2 issues.
Neither of these issues are particularly serious as all of our dates are actually stored in UTC format. This means that generally only display is affected. From #1, I would generally recommend that you patch you server and clients at about the same time to reduce confusion. We are looking at #2. We will be switching to use the new .NET time zone class that enables accurate historical computation of local times. Exactly when we make that change is still to be determined but as the issue is pretty minor, we are not expecting to rush it.
