The problem is that now WP will send the date as ‘YYYYMMDDTHH:MM:SSZ’.

Previously it would not send the trailing ‘Z’ and ruby 1.8.2 (shipped  
with Tiger) does *not* expect that ‘Z’ (and thus raises a “wrong  
format” exception).

The XML-RPC specification defines the format using one example which  
is w/o a ‘Z’ (and there is an additional note about time zone info  
which hints that they did not expect this type to ever carry TZ info  
[1]) so WP is probably wrong in sending it.

That said, newer versions of Ruby’s XML-RPC parser do support several  
variations, so upgrading your Ruby [2] will fix the problem -- but I  
have cc’ed Joseph, he can say if we should expect a patch for WP.
