News from the Taveler Apple device Birthday Issue

We have traced this issue today and it turned out that this issue is more complicated than expected.
This is more than one issue in combination. One issue is that there is a potential conversion issue on the Traveler side for summer time birthdays.
But there is also a change in the way iOS 4.0.x devices send birthday timedates via ActiveSync.

The problem seems to be in the way how Apple converts the birthday into UTC time.
Apparently the change has also affect on other applications not just Traveler.

here are two links one is quite current. It looks like Apple has changed the way the birthdays are encoded again.

IBM is working on this issue.

Will report back once I hear anything new.
