since I’m not able to create an issue in JIRA (don’t how to create an account or where to create it without being logged in), I write in the mailing list.

It would great if the Jackson dependency could be upgraded to the latest version. At the moment the old version 2.5.4 is used although there is an version 2.7.4 available. The newer version of Jackson has some changes regarding the serialization of OffsetDateTime objects. In the older version the toString-method was used, now a proper formatter is used which does not leave out trailing zeros (e.g. if second = 0 it was left out).
