(tz) Embed tzdata2014c into the TZUpdater tool


    • Resolved In Build:


      The 2014c 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

          Egypt observes DST starting 2014-05-15 at 24:00.
          (Thanks to Ahmad El-Dardiry and Gunther Vermier.)
          Details have not been announced, except that DST will not be
          observed during Ramadan. Guess that DST will stop during the same
          Ramadan dates as Morocco, and that Egypt's future spring and fall
          transitions will be the same as 2010 when it last observed DST,
          namely April's last Friday at 00:00 to September's last Thursday at
          23:00 standard time. Also, guess that Ramadan transitions will be
          at 00:00 standard time.

        Changes affecting code

          zic now generates transitions for minimum time values, eliminating
          guesswork when handling low-valued time stamps. (Thanks to Arthur
          David Olson.)

          Port to Cygwin sans glibc. (Thanks to Arthur David Olson.)

        Changes affecting commentary and documentation

          Remove now-confusing comment about Jordan. (Thanks to Oleksii
