SPF Hotfix for SPCalendarView Bug in Sharepoint 2010

This http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2596998 will fix some bugs in SPCalendarView in Sharepoint 2010 (without doing SPCalendarView.EnableV4Rendering = false that makes it views like Sharepoint 2007).

It will fix some bugs like the contents that doesn’t not show up and the wrong DisplayFormURL value.

Except that coloring content with BackgroundColorClassName still doesn’t work ( it works if SPCalendarView.EnableV4Rendering = false ).
