I'd like to highlight the current day of a Gannt diagram. Proposed syntax:

today is 30 days after start

or

today is 5 days after [Test prototype]

or

today is 2019/01/30

@endgantt

Note that by default "today" is set to the actual date, so you can also simply use:

today is colored in red

Tell us if it's what you were expecting and if you have other ideas!
