I know that Ingo announced that there had been an update to the Datetime API in 2.4.

I am based in the U.S and using the Date and the calendar dropdown is rather quirky. The dates displayed in the field are in DD/MM/YYYY format (I would like them to be MM/DD/YYYY), but when I try to save the date as say March 26th 2010, it will throw a "JavaScript Parse Error" in the feedback in CMSMain window.

I am hoping there is a simple Config setting to help solve this? Anyone have any ideas?

I have a dirty hack that is getting my by a hump:

calender-setup.js in the thirdparty folder line 5:

I changed to ifFormat : "%m/%d/%Y", // the date format

I suspect it is related to a locale setting in Zend_Date/ Sapphire Date, until someone fixes it or I can dig further this is what I'm going with and hope it does not affect anything else. Currently I only have the blog module in use.
