FS#1856 - Wrong timezones

Hello,
when selecting timezone in user profile, it only offers offset based timezones. It should offer timezones like "Europe/Prague", instead, because in summer it is UTC+2 and in the winter UTC+1. Also UTC is the same as GMT.

Using offsets will cause invalid future and past times when crossing daylight saving or when something other changes.

Adding daylight checkbox is not enough and will cause additional troubles. Just use names and store them as ENUM in database, not offset. This problem is pretty complicated and the only solution is to use names and let libraries to solve it for you.

Thank you.
