FME 2017.1: Yet Another Awesome Datetime Update

FME2017.0, in addition to the existing TimeStamper and DateFormatter transformers, gained a new transformer – the DateTimeCalculator – for carrying out temporal calculations. There were also new functions for datetimes built right into the text editor dialog.
