I've had a few users reporting some inconsistencies with the date and url Zimlets that ship with Zimbra
The date zimlet
I find that when a date is written as dd/mm/yy or mm/dd/yy then Zimbra sometimes interprets the first 2 digits as the year
As far as I'm aware, the first 2 digits of a short date should never be the year. I could understand if there were 4 digits written at the start as that would obviously be a year.
So if you check out the datezimlet1 attachment, you'll see a date of 04/05/10 the tooltip tries to list appointments for 10th May 2004
Then in the datezimlet2 attachment, the same happens. But the middle one, a date written in mm/dd/yy format doesn't get highlighted.
I can't think of any date format where the leading digits should be interpreted as the year.
The url zimlet
When I receive a plain text email I notice that URLs don't get highlighted automatically.
Is this by design?
Also if I get sent a long link which contains an @ character in it, like those e-mail confirmation things, then it gets highlighted as an e-mail address rather than a URL even though it starts with http on the same line.
Also it would be great if the url zimlet could be modified to parse URLs in the calendar appointment notes section and also the link that's inserted at the bottom of RSS feed items.
Anyone else aware of these or should I file them in Bugzilla as RFEs?
