        - Finally figured out the timezone test failures on Win32 and fixed

        - Implement %z for the internal implementation of strptime().
          Unfortunately this doesn't get picked up everywhere, so there are
          no tests for it (yet - patches welcome).

          multiples of 12. Also affected add_years() with negative years.

          object but that wasn't supported in the new() code.

          and suggested alternatives.
        - Removed useless "use UNIVERSAL qw(isa)" line.
        - Fix for installing over core perl version.

        - Skip a test on Win32 that there's just no way of passing
        - Document the above failure

        - rework add_months() to not rely on strptime being able to parse
          illegal dates (Gisle Aas).

        - More QNX fixes (
        - Restore freebsd copyright on strptime.

        - Time::Piece should now be safely subclassable

        - Added compare tests
        - Ported test suite to finally

        - Added cs_sec and cs_mon to Time::Seconds so that
          old Time::Object installs still work (except for add())
