      Description

      2013d TZdata
      -------------------

      The 2013d release of the tz code and data is available. It reflects
      the following changes circulated on the tz mailing list:

        Changes affecting future time stamps:

          Morocco's midsummer transitions this year are July 7 and August 10,
          not July 9 and August 8.

          Israel now falls back on the last Sunday of October.

        Changes affecting past time stamps:

          Specify Jerusalem's location more precisely; this changes the pre-1880
          times by 2 s.

        Changing affecting metadata only:

          Fix typos in the entries for country codes BQ and SX.

        Changes affecting code:

          Rework the code to fix a bug with handling Australia/Macquarie on
          32-bit hosts (thanks to Arthur David Olson).

          Port to platforms like NetBSD, where time_t can be wider than long.

          Add support for testing time_t types other than the system's.
          Run 'make check_time_t_alternatives' to try this out.
          Currently, the tests fail for unsigned time_t;
          this should get fixed at some point.

        Changes affecting documentation and commentary:

          Deemphasize the significance of national borders.

          Update the zdump man page.

          Remove obsolete NOID comment .

          Update several URLs and comments in the web pages.

          Spelling fixes.

          Update URL for CLDR Zone->Tzid table.
