Drupal Dates off by timezone offset, after upgrading date module

Just a quick note of how we resolved an issue related to an upgrade to Date.

We recently updated Date in our core distribution to date-7.x-2.9-beta1 and on one site, we had a number of date fields set up as just "Date". After the update, the display of all of these ended up 7 - 8 hours off -- when you edit the node, it shows up with the correct time, and when you display the node, it's off by 8 hours.

8 hours happens to be our current timezone offset from UTC, and 7 hours is the offset during Daylight Savings Time, so this immediately made me think it was a timezone offset problem.

Timed-Out Presentation - Views, Dates and Arguments

After Dark I discussed this with Ashok. He had encountered this error in the Spring and used the patch fix. I welcome further discussion here about recommended solutions.

Obviously, each node would have a different date as populated at the time the node was created. I want to iterate through the nodes and if the node date is equal to or greater then x number of days from today, do something like send an email.
