ACTION REQUIRED: Daylight Savings Changes THIS SUNDAY

As a reminder to everyone, and especially those running production Adobe ColdFusion applications, Daylight Savings Time (DST) officially begins THIS COMING SUNDAY, and lasts through the first Sunday in November.

"Studies" will apparently determine if this remains permanent, but if you're running applications on ColdFusion MX 6.1 or ColdFusion MX 7.x, you'll want to be on Sun's 1.4.2_11 (or later VM.)

More info on DST here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time

Anyway, we had an issue with ColdFusion MX 6.1 on JDK 1.4.2_11, having to do with CFLDAP support, and we issued a patch that's posted here:

But in general, for proper handling of the US 2007 DST issue, please read the Adobe Tech Support article here for the latest info:

For ColdFusion 6, 6.1, 7 and JRun: http://www.adobe.com/go/d2ab4470
For general info on DST with CF6 and up: http://www.adobe.com/go/tn_18310

Oh, and of course don't forget to set your clocks forward 1 hour at home!
