Initial release date releasedyear

The date in which version 1.0 (or closely-matching release) of the software product in question reaches its release to manufacturing (RTM) stage. In case the article is about a specific major release of a software product (for instance Internet Explorer 8 or Microsoft Office 2007), this field should contain the date in which that specific major release reached RTM stage. In case the software product is still in development and has not reached its RTM stage, please ignore this field; do not use this field to specify the release date of the first preview/test release of the software product; there is already another parameter for that use. The content of this field should look like the following: {{Start date and age|year|month|day}} In case the article uses DMY as date format, use this code instead: {{Start date and age|year|month|day|df=yes}} If unsure of which date format to use, then consult WP:MOSDATES.

Avoid using printer-hostile forms like '[http://www.example.com Example website]'. In absence of this parameter, infobox attempts to acquire the website link form Wikidata. This parameter overrides the Wikidata link. (It is useful when a second infobox for something different is defined on a page.)

(It is useful for articles that have several infoboxes and do not want all of them show a Wikidata link ad nauseam.)

Microformat[change source]

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project on English Wikipedia.

Sub-templates[change source]

Dates will only be included if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates; but do not use any of these if the date is before 1583 CE).

URLs will only be included if you use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change source]

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
