Bug Description

[ Description ]

Upstream release 3.32.2


Major changes in 3.32.2:
* Fix timezone handling of all day events (Florian Latifi)

Major changes in 3.32.1:
* Fix release date field in AppData
* Updated translations

[ QA ]

Test the calendar works. Test that integration with the rest of the system works (which happens via e-d-s). Check that Google account syncing works.

You do *not* have to QA the original bug (preserved below), under the terms of the micro release exception:


[ Regression potential ]

If this is really bad it could break the calendar application itself completely, but shouldn't break any parts of the wider system since all integration is via other components.

[ Original report ]

Full-day events jump a date back if edited and saved, even when no information about date or time is changed. Tested in local and Google calendars, happens in both.

To reproduce:
1. Create a full-day event (say on May 5)
2. Click on the event to open event editor
3. Keep the date and time unchanged (full day, May 5)
4. Press "Finish"
5. The event is now registered as a full-day event on the previous date, in this case May 4.

Tested on several events in different months, the result is always the same. I reproduced the bug in both month and week view.

Thanks for the report.

This is fixed in 3.32.2. I've uploaded that to Debian. I'll sync it to eoan when it becomes available, and will upload to the queue for disco now. There will be another message here when it's accepted.

I agree that technically it is not needed to test if the original bug is fixed, but bonus points if someone does that anyway! Would be a nice double-check then.
