#14791 new bug

Locale->Formatting->Time->Long format incorrect for US locales.

Reported by: bullfrog Owned by: pulkomandy
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Kits/Locale Kit Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:

Platform: All

Description

Long format displays for me as hh:mm:ss usphx. US locale should display time zone name abbreviations as three letter timezone: MST, EST, EDT, etc.

Change History (3)

That does look like a regression, probably after an update to ICU.
It used to be like Mr. Bullfrog expects, see the screenshot in the "Formatting" part of the Userguide on the Locale prefs.

This appears to not be limited to US locales.

BDateTimeFormat and BTimeFormat are both returning the 5 character ICU timezone string (eg gblon for UK, nzakl for New Zealand) instead of traditional timezone strings (eg GMT, NZST)
