Strange timezone jump

Hello everybody, I’ve been using this lib for quite a while now (especially scheduler adn gantt) and I’m really pleased with it. Today, however, I’ve encountered a strange issue within the gantt chart. The getEST() method sometimes returns two different zonetimes:

  • Fri Mar 18 2011 00:00:00 GMT+0100 (Romance StandardTime)
  • Thu Apr 14 2011 23:00:00 GMT+0200 (Romance DaylightTime)

This has probably something to do with the daylight saving time. Is there a way to work around it? Also, the code runs on a server that uses Eastern time.

What is the exact problem with time zone? You may convert it to UTC if you need. The Javascript on the client side works in local user time zone. There is a daylight shift around 23 March in some countries, so it displays the correct time zone for particular time.
