Hi Alan

We went through daylight savings changes a couple of weeks back, I have 
just had a quick look and both events before and after the change are 
displaying correctly for us.

That said, we have a non-standard config.inc.php setting for timezone 
(localised for NZ) which means I can not guarantee this is working for a 
standard UTC setup, but things look like they will "just work" for you.
