Is there a bug in the isodate package? When I switch to \shortdate with the option german, horizontal spaces occur after the periods:

\documentclass{article}
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\usepackage[german]{isodate}
    \shortdate
\begin{document}
30.04.17 (manual)\\\today\,(isodate)
\end{document}

isodate spacing bug

Is this known/wanted? I certainly would rather not have the spaces after the periods. Would it be better to use datetime2?

It is wanted, see the documenentation. You can change it like this:

\documentclass{article}
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\usepackage[german]{isodate}
    \shortdate
\daymonthsepgerman{}\monthyearsepgerman{}{}
\begin{document}
30.04.17 (manual)\\\today\,(isodate)
\end{document}

  • Interesting spelling of documentation (documenentation). – TeXnician May 1 '17 at 7:02
