Great, But as I indicated earlier (and as per another recent thread),
what the Java world really needs is for a 2018g to be released that
uses 01:00 instead of 25:00 in the main format (not rearguard). Give
it 15 months and I'd expect the issue will have worked through the
various processes, but the JDK in particular is not always fast to
change [1]
