pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:1:   News for the tz database    + Release 2016c - 2016-03-23 00:51:27 -0700 +  +  Changes affecting future time stamps +  +  Azerbaijan no longer observes DST. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.) +  +  Chile reverts from permanent to seasonal DST. (Thanks to Juan +  Correa for the heads-up, and to Tim Parenti for corrections.) +  Guess that future transitions are August's and May's second +  Saturdays at 24:00 mainland time. Also, call the period from +  2014-09-07 through 2016-05-14 daylight saving time instead of +  standard time, as that seems more appropriate now. +  +  Changes affecting past time stamps +  +  Europe/Kaliningrad and Europe/Vilnius changed from +03/+04 to +  +02/+03 on 1989-03-26, not 1991-03-31. Europe/Volgograd changed +  from +04/+05 to +03/+04 on 1988-03-27, not 1989-03-26. +  (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.) +  +  Changes to commentary +  +  Several updates and URLs for historical and proposed Russian changes. +  (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov, Matt Johnson, and Alexander Krivenyshev.) +  +  + Release 2016b - 2016-03-12 17:30:14 -0800 +  +  Changes affecting future time stamps +  +  New zones Europe/Astrakhan and Europe/Ulyanovsk for Astrakhan and +  Ulyanovsk Oblasts, Russia, both of which will switch from +03 to +04 on +  2016-03-27 at 02:00 local time. They need distinct zones since their +  post-1970 histories disagree. New zone Asia/Barnaul for Altai Krai and +  Altai Republic, Russia, which will switch from +06 to +07 on the same date +  and local time. The Astrakhan change is already official; the others have +  passed the first reading in the State Duma and are extremely likely. +  Also, Asia/Sakhalin moves from +10 to +11 on 2016-03-27 at 02:00. +  (Thanks to Alexander Krivenyshev for the heads-up, and to Matt Johnson +  and Stepan Golosunov for followup.) +  +  As a trial of a new system that needs less information to be made up, +  the new zones use numeric time zone abbreviations like "+04" +  instead of invented abbreviations like "ASTT". +  +  Haiti will not observe DST in 2016. (Thanks to Jean Antoine via +  Steffen Thorsen.) +  +  Palestine's spring-forward transition on 2016-03-26 is at 01:00, not 00:00. +  (Thanks to Hannah Kreitem.) Guess future transitions will be March's last +  Saturday at 01:00, not March's last Friday at 24:00. +  +  Changes affecting past time stamps +  +  Europe/Chisinau observed DST during 1990, and switched from +04 to +  +03 at 1990-05-06 02:00, instead of switching from +03 to +02. +  (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.) +  +  1991 abbreviations in Europe/Samara should be SAMT/SAMST, not +  KUYT/KUYST. (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.) +  +  Changes to code +  +  tzselect's diagnostics and checking, and checktab.awk's checking, +  have been improved. (Thanks to J William Piggott.) +  +  tzcode now builds under MinGW. (Thanks to Ian Abbott and Esben Haabendal.) +  +  tzselect now tests Julian-date TZ settings more accurately. +  (Thanks to J William Piggott.) +  +  Changes to commentary +  +  Comments in zone tables have been improved. (Thanks to J William Piggott.) +  +  tzselect again limits its menu comments so that menus fit on a +  24x80 alphanumeric display. +  +  A new web page tz-how-to.html. (Thanks to Bill Seymour.) +  +  In the Theory file, the description of possible time zone abbreviations in +  tzdata has been cleaned up, as the old description was unclear and +  inconsistent. (Thanks to Alain Mouette for reporting the problem.) +  +    Release 2016a - 2016-01-26 23:28:02 -0800       Changes affecting future time stamps       America/Cayman will not observe daylight saving this year after all.    Revert our guess that it would. (Thanks to Matt Johnson.)       Asia/Chita switches from +0800 to +0900 on 2016-03-27 at 02:00.    (Thanks to Alexander Krivenyshev.)
