1:   News for the tz database    + Release 2016i - 2016-11-01 23:19:52 -0700 +  +  Briefly: Cyprus split into two time zones on 2016-10-30, and Tonga +  reintroduces DST on 2016-11-06. +  +  Changes to future time stamps +  +  Pacific/Tongatapu begins DST on 2016-11-06 at 02:00, ending on +  2017-01-15 at 03:00. Assume future observances in Tonga will be +  from the first Sunday in November through the third Sunday in +  January, like Fiji. (Thanks to Pulu ╩╗Anau.) Switch to numeric +  time zone abbreviations for this zone. +  +  Changes to past and future time stamps +  +  Northern Cyprus is now +03 year round, causing a split in Cyprus +  time zones starting 2016-10-30 at 04:00. This creates a zone +  Asia/Famagusta. (Thanks to Even Scharning and Matt Johnson.) +  +  Antarctica/Casey switched from +08 to +11 on 2016-10-22. +  (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.) +  +  Changes to past time stamps +  +  Several corrections were made for pre-1975 time stamps in Italy. +  These affect Europe/Malta, Europe/Rome, Europe/San_Marino, and +  Europe/Vatican. +  +  First, the 1893-11-01 00:00 transition in Italy used the new UT +  offset (+01), not the old (+00:49:56). (Thanks to Michael +  Deckers.) +  +  Second, rules for daylight saving in Italy were changed to agree +  with Italy's National Institute of Metrological Research (INRiM) +  except for 1944, as follows (thanks to Pierpaolo Bernardi, Brian +  Inglis, and Michael Deckers): +  +  The 1916-06-03 transition was at 24:00, not 00:00. +  +  The 1916-10-01, 1919-10-05, and 1920-09-19 transitions were at +  00:00, not 01:00. +  +  The 1917-09-30 and 1918-10-06 transitions were at 24:00, not +  01:00. +  +  The 1944-09-17 transition was at 03:00, not 01:00. This +  particular change is taken from Italian law as INRiM's table, +  (which says 02:00) appears to have a typo here. Also, keep the +  1944-04-03 transition for Europe/Rome, as Rome was controlled by +  Germany then. +  +  The 1967-1970 and 1972-1974 fallback transitions were at 01:00, +  not 00:00. +  +  Changes to code +  +  The code should now be buildable on AmigaOS merely by setting the +  appropriate Makefile variables. (From a patch by Carsten Larsen.) +  +    Release 2016h - 2016-10-19 23:17:57 -0700       Changes to future time stamps
