Timezone Support for Digest Output

When you edit digests or create new digests there is now a simple “Timezone” field that lets you enter an hour offset (such as -5 for EST, 1 for CET, etc..) so that times output by %HOUR% %TIME24%, etc, and other Feed Digest tags, will show the time adjusted by a certain number of hours. […]

Public OPML outlines available for each digest
