Hmm these are actually dates in Serbian (cyrillic). I wonder if that has anything to do with my latest set of recipes and use of setlocale.

Kovid?

Serbian! I might add that I have English specified in the settings.

Yeah that would be it. I'm disabling the locale settings in those recipes. One way to acheive what you want is to overload the download function in the recipe, something like this:

Code:
def download(self, *args, **kwargs):
  self.timefmt = 'set this to a lcoalized string'
  return BasicNewsRecipe.download(self, *args, **kwargs)

Yes, a Mac (Leopard). I didn't use any recipe, just put the Observer's feeds URL in and set the number of days. A week ago it worked fine: today after the upgrade to the new version of Calibre it had the result you saw. Not a disaster as the actual text was fine.

That does not resolve the issue since the problem is not the format but the actual localized values of days in week and months.

I'm not that fluent with python but is there something like constructor/destructor in python class? Because if there is I would be able to modify the class to set locale on construction and revert it to the original one in destructor.

You can set timefmt to the actual day and month in serbian, rather than a format string

I tried this with the New York Times news feed which is already in Calibre, and got the same result: dates in Serbian. I previously tried the Observer in the prior version of Calibre, which was OK, and then in the latest version - again, dates in Serbian. Calibre is set to English. There doesn't appear to be anything I can do to alter this - is it in effect a bug which needs fixing? (I'm using Calibre on Macs with Tiger and Leopard).
