VASmalltalk – Repairing DateAndTime with ICU

I uploaded version 0.0.3 to and here are some simple examples to fix all these bugs I mentioned in my earlier posting.

To get a correct DateAndTime instance with the current local date/time I added DateAndTime class>>currentLocalDateAndTime. This method uses ICU and creates a correctly initialized DateAndTime instance and returns this.

By querying DateAndTime currentLocalDateAndTime offset hours you get the offset from UTC to that current time in hours.

Another convenient method is DateAndTime class>>currentUTCDateAndTime, which returns a correctly initialized DateAndTime instance for the current UTC time (with a correct offset).
