What does definition available date/time mean?
The definition available date/time is the date and time that the definition is available to download. Your Microsoft product may display the created date/time, which is the date and time that the definition was created. There is often a time lag between the created date/time and the available date/time.
Note also that the date/time are displayed as UTC: https://www.microsoft.com/security/p...sed&Package=AM
I would say this pretty well sums it up,lol.
Thanks for the info

hi !

"Definition available date (?)
Jul 08, 2010 09:35 PM UTC "

yes, i noticed they use the term UTC.
but, too bad they donīt use it correctly.
that date & time is NOT in UTC !

UTC defines the day having 24 hours, there is NO AM/PM in UTC !

according to ISO 8601 it should be: "2010-07-08 21.35Z"
(year-month-day hour-minute)

"ISO 8601 Data elements and interchange formats — Information interchange — Representation of dates and times is an international standard covering the exchange of date and time-related data. The purpose of this standard is to provide an unambiguous and well-defined method of representing dates and times, so as to avoid misinterpretation of numeric representations of dates and times, particularly when data is transferred between countries with different conventions for writing numeric dates and times."

"The first edition of the ISO 8601 standard was published in 1988"

itīt "time" for Microsoft and others to wake up....

The date & time the definitions are created/released isn't ISO certified. So, I would guess that its probably UTC time on the The World Clock – Time Zones . At least that is the method used when there are online MVP sessions.

i donīt know what you mean by "ISO certified ?

as i posted above: UTC defines the day having 24 hours, there is NO AM/PM in UTC !
and, you can NOT write the date "backwards" in UTC.
in other words: if you use the term UTC, you must write date & time according to ISO 8601.

Not that it really matters as far as the definitions, but I'm certain the UTC designation is as a time zone since most people know how many hours they are plus or minus UTC, which, from the Wiki article you referenced, replaced GMT:

Quote:
Time zones around the world can be expressed as positive or negative offsets from UTC; UTC replaced GMT as the basis for the main reference time scale
This eliminates the confusion that could result if the time were identified as PST/PDT.
