      Description

      2012a tzdata

      antarctica current best known timezone info for various
      antarctic bases for the winter of 2012

      asia Armenia has abolished summer time

      australasia
      Tokelau copied Samoa and swapped sides of the
      International Data line last December. NB: this
      change affects current timestamps.

      europe Spelling corrections for some French names in comments.

      leapseconds
      Bulletin C43 incorporated (a leap Second will occur
      2012-06-30 at 23:59:60 UTC) Bulletin C42 was also
      incorporated (but never released) - it said nothing
      very interesting (no leap second 2011-12-31).

      northamerica
      New zone America/Creston created for an area in
      British Columbia that was previously (and apparently
      incorrectly) considered identical to Dawson Creek.
      Also, some corrections to 1918 summer time end dates
      in several Canadian zones.

      southamerica
      Chile has extended Summer time in the 2011/2 summer.
      The Falkland Islands now have it permanently (continuing
      the 2011 experiment.) This "permanently" is a guess,
      it apparently is certain for 2012 (as certain as these
      things ever are) and considered likely into the future.

      zone.tab
      New America/Creston zone added, and a typo in the entry
      for Europe/Samara corrected.
      Right after 2012a releases, some more changes needed to be released soon
      so 2012b is released.

      2012b

      The only real change is to the start date for summer time in Cuba this year.
      The end date is not yet certain, so just leave it as we have it
      (last Sun in Oct) and we'll see what happens in September or October
      (probably). Since there is no discernable pattern to the start dates,
      I'm also proposing leaving that for 2013 as we had assumed it would be
      for 2012 (second Sunday in March). It has been that more years recently
      than anything else (just not last year, or this year, but they've not been
      the same either.)

      The excess tab from the zone.tab file is also gone.
