        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.
