Bug fix for Toronto timezone

A few users in Toronto noted that the America/Toronto timezone was giving GMT time, despite the fact that Toronto isn’t really that close to Greenwich…

It turns out that we had to update our timezone database, since Toronto has only officially existed recently (at least, as far as timezones are concerned). We’ve updated our database, so Toronto has now returned to its traditional geographic location in Canada.

New feature: automatic daylight savings changeover

If you click Options, and then Account Preferences, you can now pick what country and city you reside in (or at least one nearby). When you do so, we will automatically update your FastMail.FM time (used for timestamping sent messages, displaying times on the Mailbox screen, etc) when daylight savings changes.
