    Hi,

    I've experienced the same issue Alexander did: after upgrading to Moodle 2.9 the server time shows one hour less than it should in the block. I don't think it is related to server configuration because another instance of Moodle 2.7 on that same server shows the time like it should.

    Thanks for reporting a problem, Guys.

    I've sent something to Alexander to test.

    Could one of you create a Tracker issue for this?

    I'm quite busy organising MootUS15 currently and any help you could provide on this issue would be welcomed.

    Michael.

    I was up to create the issue but Mario has overtaken me:

    I found that the new DateTimeZone object was already adjusting for daylight saving so my compensation for daylight saving was no longer necessary.

    I have created a new version that I hope will resolve this problem. Could you please test the new version (available on Git and in the here) and confirm this resolves your problem?

    Hello,
    Is there any work being done on this for 3.1+? This would be a very useful block to use on our site.
    Thank you,
    Gina

    I haven't tested it yet, but it should still work. There's not too much in this block that is version specific.

    Hi Veronica,
    I have the module running in 3.3 with no issues. I hope Michael will update the source accordingly soon.
    Can't say anything about 3.4 yet.

    Hi, all.

    I haven't really changed much, but I did a code review and uploaded a new version for 2.9 to 3.4.
