I have an application that stores the datetime column always in UTC. I convert it to local datetime when needed in the UI (the likes of the export functionality needs raw data - same as in the db, UTC datetime). All spot on with the version 1.0.74 I was using before.

Since I upgraded to 1.0.85 (tested it in 1.0.88 too, same result), I realized that the reader.GetDateTime method automatically converts the datetime column to the (the machine's) local time.

It's not the behaviour I expected and a change from the previous versions, would it be possible that the reader.GetDateTime returns the datetime in the timezone that is stored in the db?

Checking the source I just figured out that we need to specify the DateTimeKind to Utc in the connectionstring. Not sure why it's not Utc by default anyway...
