I've quickly hacked together a feed using Yahoo Pipes that scrapes the http://www.iana.org/time-zones website:


You can subscribe to it using an RSS reader, or (under "more options") have new entries emailed to you.

Hope that helps,

I would like to receive notification of when a new release has been issued, but without receiving the messages between contributors debating the merits of various proposed changes.  Is there a way to configure my mailing list subscription to only receive release notifications?  Or is there some other method by which I can receive release notifications without checking the web site every day?

And do such new release announcements always come from the same person?  That would also help.
