pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:1:   News for the tz database    + Release 2015c - 2015-04-11 08:55:55 -0700 +  +  Changes affecting future time stamps +  +  Egypt's spring-forward transition is at 24:00 on April's last Thursday, +  not 00:00 on April's last Friday. 2015's transition will therefore be on +  Thursday, April 30 at 24:00, not Friday, April 24 at 00:00. Similar fixes +  apply to 2026, 2037, 2043, etc. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.) +  +  Changes affecting past time stamps +  +  The following changes affect some pre-1991 Chile-related time stamps +  in America/Santiago, Antarctica/Palmer, and Pacific/Easter. +  +  The 1910 transition was January 10, not January 1. +  +  The 1918 transition was September 10, not September 1. +  +  The UTC-4 time observed from 1932 to 1942 is now considered to be +  standard time, not year-round DST. +  +  Santiago observed DST (UTC-3) from 1946-07-15 through 1946-08-31, +  then reverted to standard time, then switched its time zone to +  UTC-5 on 1947-04-01. +  +  Assume transitions before 1968 were at 00:00, since we have no data +  saying otherwise. +  +  The spring 1988 transition was 1988-10-09, not 1988-10-02. +  The fall 1990 transition was 1990-03-11, not 1990-03-18. +  +  Assume no UTC offset change for Pacific/Easter on 1890-01-01, +  and omit all transitions on Pacific/Easter from 1942 through 1946 +  since we have no data suggesting that they existed. +  +  One more zone has been turned into a link, as it differed +  from an existing zone only for older time stamps. As usual, +  this change affects UTC offsets in pre-1970 time stamps only. +  The zone's old contents have been moved to the 'backzone' file. +  The affected zone is America/Montreal. +  +  Changes affecting commentary +  +  Mention the TZUpdater tool. +  +  Mention "The Time Now". (Thanks to Brandon Ramsey.) +  +  + Release 2015b - 2015-03-19 23:28:11 -0700 +  +  Changes affecting future time stamps +  +  Mongolia will start observing DST again this year, from the last +  Saturday in March at 02:00 to the last Saturday in September at 00:00. +  (Thanks to Ganbold Tsagaankhuu.) +  +  Palestine will start DST on March 28, not March 27. Also, +  correct the fall 2014 transition from September 26 to October 24. +  Adjust future predictions accordingly. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.) +  +  Changes affecting past time stamps +  +  The 1982 zone shift in Pacific/Easter has been corrected, fixing a 2015a +  regression. (Thanks to Stuart Bishop for reporting the problem.) +  +  Some more zones have been turned into links, when they differed +  from existing zones only for older time stamps. As usual, +  these changes affect UTC offsets in pre-1970 time stamps only. +  Their old contents have been moved to the 'backzone' file. +  The affected zones are: America/Antigua, America/Cayman, +  Pacific/Midway, and Pacific/Saipan. +  +  Changes affecting time zone abbreviations +  +  Correct the 1992-2010 DST abbreviation in Volgograd from "MSK" to "MSD". +  (Thanks to Hank W.) +  +  Changes affecting code +  +  Fix integer overflow bug in reference 'mktime' implementation. +  (Problem reported by Jörg Richter.) +  +  Allow -Dtime_tz=time_t compilations, and allow -Dtime_tz=... libraries +  to be used in the same executable as standard-library time_t functions. +  (Problems reported by Bradley White.) +  +  Changes affecting commentary +  +  Cite the recent Mexican decree changing Quintana Roo's time zone. +  (Thanks to Carlos Raúl Perasso.) +  +  Likewise for the recent Chilean decree. (Thanks to Eduardo Romero Urra.) +  +  Update info about Mars time. +  +    Release 2015a - 2015-01-29 22:35:20 -0800       Changes affecting future time stamps       The Mexican state of Quintana Roo, represented by America/Cancun,    will shift from Central Time with DST to Eastern Time without DST    on 2015-02-01 at 02:00. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen and Gwillim Law.)       Chile will not change clocks in April or thereafter; its new standard time    will be its old daylight saving time. This affects America/Santiago,
