      The 2014j 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 current and future time stamps

          Turks & Caicos' switch from US eastern time to UTC-4 year-round
          did not occur on 2014-11-02 at 02:00. It's currently scheduled
          for 2015-11-01 at 02:00. (Thanks to Chris Walton.)

        Changes affecting past time stamps

          Many pre-1989 time stamps have been corrected for Asia/Seoul and
          Asia/Pyongyang, based on sources for the Korean-language Wikipedia
          entry for time in Korea. (Thanks to Sanghyuk Jung.) Also, no
          longer guess that Pyongyang mimicked Seoul time after World War II,
          as this is politically implausible.

          Some more zones have been turned into links, when they differed
          from existing zones only for older time stamps. As usual,
          these changes affect UTC offsets in pre-1970 time stamps only.
          Their old contents have been moved to the 'backzone' file.
          The affected zones are: Africa/Addis_Ababa, Africa/Asmara,
          Africa/Dar_es_Salaam, Africa/Djibouti, Africa/Kampala,
          Africa/Mogadishu, Indian/Antananarivo, Indian/Comoro, and

        Changes affecting commentary

          The commentary is less enthusiastic about Shanks as a source,
          and is more careful to distinguish UT from UTC.
