Is nmake impacted by the new Daylight Saving Time?

Starting in 2007 the schedule for Daylight Saving Time (DST) changes in the USA. DST will begin the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November. This change does not impact Nokia nmake. Since nmake uses canonical system time internally (values of type time_t), which is independent of local time/DST, basic tool operations are not impacted by a change in DST. Conversions from canonical time to local time for output have also been verified to behave correctly.

Please note that correct operation requires the host system to be configured for the change in DST, so that standard C library time conversion routines including localtime() and gmtime() function correctly. Also any required Java updates need to be applied if you are working with Java code.
