A date field that understands natural-language input (e.g "next friday at eleven")

NaturalDate is a date input field that accepts natural language input, allowing the user to input dates (and times) such as "next friday", "tomorrow at nine", etc.

The component uses the now defunct JChronic library (which in turn is a Java version of the ruby Chronic library) to parse the input on the server side. A client-side implementation is in the works and will be added to a future version.
