The data is owned by the caller of the function.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.

Return value

Type: GDateTime

A new GDateTime, or NULL if date_string could not be parsed.

The caller of the function takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
The return value can be NULL.
