NOW function is not recognized on custom column

MetaBase is not recognizing the NOW function when creating a custom column on the on THE QUESTION builder. I tried changing the report timezone in admin settings from default to America/New York but that didnt work... Could it be the version I am using? (v0.45.3) or because it is Open Source? That would be weird because its the ONLY function that is not working for me... I tried with and without parenthesis ()...
