On Mon, 4 Jan 2010, Harald Harders submitted an update to the 



Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/isodate/
Summary description: Prints dates and date ranges in various (language-dependent) formats
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
This package provides ten output formats of the 
commands \today, \printdate, \printdateTeX, and \daterange
(partly language dependent): 
ISO (yyyy-mm-dd),
numeric (e.g. dd.\,mm.~yyyy),
short (e.g. dd.\,mm.\,yy),
TeX (yyyy/mm/dd),
original (e.g. dd. mmm yyyy),
short original (e.g. dd. mmm yy),
as well as numerical formats with Roman numerals for the month.

The commands \printdate and \printdateTeX print any date.
The date is given as an argument using the actual date
format for output: 
\printdate{yyyy-mm-dd}, \printdate{dd.mm.yyyy}, or
and \printdateTeX{yyyy/mm/dd}. 

The command \daterange prints a date range and leaves out unnecessary 
year or month entries. 
E.g. 2000-05-03 to 2000-05-08 leads to `2000-05-03 to 08'.
