datetime2 package FAQ

Why is showdow a package option rather than a language option? 🔗

In order to show the day of week (showdow=true), the week day needs to be calculated for commands like \today and \DTMdate. This requires that the datetime2-calc.sty package is loaded. If showdow is used as a package option, it can automatically load datetime2-calc after datetime2 has finished loading, which saves you from remembering to load it. Since the datetime2-calc package additionally requires pgfkeys and pgfcalendar which adds to the overall document build time, it’s not loaded unless required.
