utc_offset gives the base offset of the time zone (not taking daylight savings time into account). For the total offset including daylight savings time, use utc_total_offset instead:

The #utc_offset and #utc_total_offset attributes are often confused
(#55, #89). Rename as #base_utc_offset and #current_utc_offset

Retain the old names as aliases.
