    Hi
    I live in New Zealand and this year our government postponed our switching to daylight savings. As usual, my Mac ticked over as necessary, but my Skype has not.

    In the chat window, it displays the correct time, but not the correct date.
    It shows 'tomorrows date'. See image below.

    I have searched for a solution and have read that Skype automatically grabs the time from the computer, and after checking my system preferences am confused as my Mac time and date is correct.

    Is it something to do with my countries postponement of daylight saving changes? Or is there a solution, please help.

    Thank you kindly.

    Have you tried to reset your timezone in your Skype profile? It should just use your Mac's date/time.

    Am having the same issue (also in NZ) so glad to know it's not an issue with my computer. No idea on a fix.

    Had the same problem during the past months, but just updated from 2.8 beta to 2.8 and it now seems to work correctly...? Anyone wants to confirm?
