/ std.datetime

I'm in the process of learning D, and to do so I'm converting some older code.

I need to print out the current local date and time, which is causing 
some difficulties because doesn't seem adequate in this 
respect. I understand there is soon to be a replacement, std.datetime, 
which I suspect will be much easier.

When are we likely to see a new release which includes std.datetime?

If not relatively soon I presume the easiest thing to do is to download 
it myself and recompile the phobos library to include it. In which case 
there seems to be already a std.datetime with different functionality, 
is this used elsewhere in phobos? i.e. if I replace it with the new 
std.datetime is that OK?

Many thanks,
