I've had some problems with the timezone offset, mainly due to the fact that it doesn't take Daylight Savings Time into account. I've seen some other bug reports/feature requests for that.
What I'd like to see is if you would be willing to add an automatic timezone offset calculation. Dreamweaver does this by creating a new file on the server, getting its creation time/date, deleting the file and comparing the time/date with the local time/date. It's a pretty simple procedure that would make life a lot easier.
Of course, it wouldn't hurt if you could auto-adjust for daylight savings time as well. If not, the auto-timezone calculation would need to be repeated at least once per day.
