Using QGIS 1.4 on Debian GNU/Linux, "Save Selection as Shapefile" resulted in Date fields being re-written as Text fields in the resulting Shapefile.

The source is a municipal database, I believe. This document indicates dBase has supported the Date format at least since its writing in 2001: http://www.dbase.com/knowledgebase/int/dateobject/dateobject.htm
In addition, performing the same routine with ArcMap leaves the Date field intact.

Hello, bug triage...
in QGIS 2.13 master, exporting a layer with Date attribute in Shapefile preserves the Date attribute (tests done from a memory layer to a shapefile). QGis converts it to a QDate if date formatting is correct.
I am closing this bug.
