The events from an imported .ics file with Swedish holidays are shifted later by two hours instead of being created as all day events. In other time zones than CEST the offset will probably be different.

I can confirm this. For me its one hour later for every event I receive by email. But if you import the event and then use the pulley menu -> edit it switches back to the original time then you click just on save and the time is corrected. No other activity needed.

In addition to that, also regular events in CEST are shifted by one hour for me. The following event eg. is displayed as happening between 11:00 and 11:15 instead of 10:00 and 10:15:

BEGIN:VEVENT
   ORGANIZER;CN="YYY YYY":MAILTO:yyy@example.com

END:VEVENT

That makes importing appointments rather pointless if you cannot be sure WHEN it will take place... ;)

@BonoNL Do you have Version 1.19 running? I don't seem to have this bug anymore. Maybe it got fixed in 1.19 ??

There is another problem:

When you update an event/appointment and send a new email (for example with outlook as ics file) the new time doesn't get imported. You can hear the import sound but the original event stays with the old time no second event at all (moved from 9 o'clock to 16). I think there is a bug with two events with the same name that can't be handled correctly.

After you delete the old event and import the new it works (with the wrong offset of course).

After the latest update to 1.19. I don't have the offset bug anymore. Can anybody confirm this? New events have automatically the correct time for me.

@PatsJolla No, the problem is still there for me in 1.1.9.28 after having imported the ICS file linked in the question. Events that happen during DST are 2 hours late (start and end at 02.00) and events that happen during normal time are 1 hour late (start and end at 01.00).

I can also confirm that this still happens for me (in Germany) with 1.1.9.28

Can you try with version 2.0.0.10 or 2.0.1.7 and let us know if it still exists?
