I realise that this has already been partly raise in the "SMW 1.4.0 released"
thread, I wonder if we could consider the problems encoutered with a new
roll-out of SMW on an extensive wiki?
We have hundreds of pages using properties, many with date properties and
many of these have been entered manually (not with a form). Therefore, dates
are entered in a number of formats, depending on the knowledge and
experience of the user. We have many users from very different backgrounds
and we are keen that they all feel they have equal access to the Wiki.
With SMW 1.4.0 the following dates are accepted:
(also with strokes instead of dashes) but these two dates are not:
This strikes me as somewhat inconsistent. It is also a pain that, when we
install a new version of SMW (which we love, we really do!) we then have to
trawl through hundreds of pages to update them.
Please, would it be possible to fix this so that DD-MM-YYYY dates with
leading zeros in day are accepted?

Izzy, those do seem to be additional regressions. A month can't have a
leading zero when using YYYY-MM-DD or MM-DD-YYYY format. I added your

Mr. Werner, I was unable to reproduce or understand this part of your

I surrounded a date with other text and it seemed to work.
Please create a failing property assignment on the Test_date page.
