      Description

      The 2013i release of the tz code and data is available. It reflects
      the following changes, which were either circulated on the tz mailing
      list or are relatively minor technical or administrative changes:

        Changes affecting near-future time stamps:

          Jordan switches back to standard time at 00:00 on December 20, 2013.
          The 2006-2011 transition schedule is planned to resume in 2014.
          (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)

        Changes affecting past time stamps:

          In 2004, Cuba began DST on March 28, not April 4.
          (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)

        Changes affecting code

          The compile-time flag NOSOLAR has been removed, as nowadays the
          benefit of slightly shrinking runtime table size is outweighed by the
          cost of disallowing potential future updates that exceed old limits.

        Changes affecting documentation and commentary

          The files solar87, solar88, and solar89 are no longer distributed.
          They were a negative experiment -- that is, a demonstration that
          tz data can represent solar time only with some difficulty and error.
          Their presence in the distribution caused confusion, as Riyadh
          civil time was generally not solar time in those years.

          tz-link.htm now mentions Noda Time. (Thanks to Matt Johnson.)
