Are you ready for the Leap Second?

21st May 2015 Customers News

Leap seconds are a periodic one-second adjustment of Coordinated Universal Time(UTC) in order to keep a system’s time of day close to the mean solar time, the next leap second insertion is scheduled for June 30th, 2015 at 23:59:60 UTC.

The last time a leap second was added was 2012, which resulted in some issues for some Linux users (described in this article on The Register), in particular for users running an out of date version. To ensure you do not encounter problems with Isode products it is important your operating system and Isode products are up to date.

We encourage Isode customers and evaluators to read the published advice for their operating system. Both Redhat and Windows have issued information on how to handle the leap second being added.
