Solaris 10 What's New

GMT-offset Quoted Time Zones

This feature is new in the Software Express pilot program. This feature is included in the Solaris 10 3/05 release.

The Solaris Install program installs a quoted time zone as the system default time zone, if a GMT-offset style time zone is selected. Previously, an unquoted time zone was installed.

Note that quoted time zones behave differently than unquoted time zones. When the time zone name is displayed by the date command, for example, quoted time zones display the offset from GMT. Unquoted time zones display only the string “GMT,” without the offset from GMT.
