8.145. perl-DateTime

Updated perl-DateTime packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
DateTime is a class for the representation of date/time combinations, and is part of the Perl DateTime project.

Bug Fix

Previously, DateTime::Duration did not recognize the leap to 2012-07-01, which led to inaccurate computing time duration through the 2012-06-30T23:59:60 second. To fix this bug, a leap second appended in the end of 2012-06-30 has been added to perl-DateTime leap second database. Time arithmetic using Perl modules DateTime and DateTime::Duration now recognizes the leap from 2012-06-30 second correctly.
Users of perl-DateTime are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
