<title>Java date and time API - Upgrade from 2.9 to 2.9.4</title>
<author>Stephen Colebourne</author>
<section name="Upgrade">
These are the release notes and advice for upgrading Joda-Time from version 2.8 to version 2.9.4.
Joda-Time version 2.9.4
Joda-Time is a date and time handling library that seeks to replace the JDK
Date and Calendar classes. For Java SE 8 and later, please use java.time instead.
This release contains one bug fix, a time-zone update and some minor internal changes.
The release runs on JDK 5 or later.
Joda-Time is licensed under the business-friendly Apache License Version 2.
This is the same license as all of Apache, plus other open source projects such as Spring.

Changes in 2.9.4
- DateTimeZone data updated to version 2016d
- Loading time-zone provider now occurs in a priveleged block [#327, #375]
Changes in 2.9.3
- DateTimeZone data updated to version 2016c
- Make DateTimeUtils.SYSTEM_MILLIS_PROVIDER public [#357]
- Fix bug when adding months at the maximum limits of integer [#361]
- Add Turkish period translations [#364]
Changes in 2.9.2
- DateTimeZone data updated to version 2016a (version 2.9 had time-zone data 2015g)
- Fix bug in time-zone binary search [#332]
- Minor fixes to code internals [#339, #326, #344, #350, #343]
- Better document behaviour [#325]
Changes in 2.9.1
- Fix bug introduced by Long.MIN_VALUE and Long.MAX_VALUE changes [#328]
Enhancements in 2.9
- Faster parsing of time-zone identifiers [#282]
- Added Interval.parseWithOffset(String) [#299, #296]
Provides a way to parse the fixed offset in an interval string
- Add DateTimeFormatter methods for StringBuilder [#298]
- Add Russian period translations [#320]
- Add Italian period translations [#312]
- Add Czech period translations [#313]
- Clarify that PeriodFormatterBuilder is in an invalid state once built [#309]
- Allow DateTime and Interval to refer to values at Long.MIN_VALUE and Long.MAX_VALUE [#297, #190]
A DateTime may be created with any millisecond value, however at the very edges there may be
some undesirable effects, for example always using UTC instead of the time-zone
- Better error message for malformed tzdb files [#319]
- Better error message for interval constructor [#321]
Compatibility between 2.8 and 2.9
Build system - Yes
Binary compatible - Yes
Source compatible - Yes
Serialization compatible - Yes
Data compatible - Yes
- DateTimeZone data updated to version 2015g
Semantic compatible - Yes
Bug fixes in 2.9
- Fixed to handle JDK 8u60 [#288, #291]
Without this fix, formatting a time-zone will print "+00:00" instead of "GMT" for the GMT time-zone
- Fix parsing of basic form ISO style where year has unnecessary plus sign [#86]
For example, +20151030 will now be correctly parsed as year 2015.
- Fix overflow bug in intervals [#315]
Joda-Time uses annotations from Joda-Convert.
In the Java programming language, this dependency is optional, however in Scala it is not.
Scala users must manually add the Joda-Convert v1.2 dependency.
