time- is now on Hackage. fixes bugs and infelicities in the formatting and parsing in 

For formatting:

* %0Y, %_Y, %0G and %_G now pad to four characters.

* Likewise %0C, %_C, %0f and %_f pad to two characters.

For parsing:

* Runs of n whitespace characters now match n or more whitespace 
characters. Formerly it matched zero or more whitespace characters.

* %Y, %G, %C and %f match one or more digits

* %0Y and %0G match exactly four digits. %0C and %0f match exactly two 


* Now uses mkTyCon3 instead of deprecated mkTyCon (contributed by Chris 


* Various infrastructure improvements (Chris Moline and me)

* QuickCheck properties now tested

I tried using Cabal's "detailed" test-suite, but it doesn't play well 
with QuickCheck and is very slow with large numbers of small test cases. 
I'm now making use of the test-framework package, which does play well 
with QuickCheck.
