Yest version 2.7 released

We are very pleased to announce the release of version 2.7 of yest.

It now supports the date(1) "%^" string modifier, and is now even simpler to compile in non-US environments. Minor bug fixes. It also compiles strictly without warnings.

This command line utility adds or subtracts days, hours, and/or minutes from a given date, and outputs the results in the specified format.

This utility is very useful in scripts where you must automatically determine dates and/or times such as "a week ago", "two hours ago", "tomorrow".

Yest supports most date(1) output format codes as well as a few of its own.
