dictionaryWithContentsOfFile does not support <date>

I have a plist which contains elements, which I want to read by using dictionaryWithContentsOfFile.
To my surprise I noticed that the method does not support elements in the Plist.
Can this be added? Would be really helpful.


I’ve done it in my copy by adding this code in the method startElement in CCFileUtils.cpp (kind of hack, but it works):
else if(sName == “date”)
m_tState = SAX_STRING;


Because dictionaryWithContentsOfFile is used for parsing plist file generated by texturepacker or other tools.
So it may not support all types.
