        Description

        Date: Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:13:15 -0700
        Subject: [tz] [tz-announce] 2016e release of tz code and data available

        The 2016e 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 future time stamps

            Africa/Cairo observes DST in 2016 from July 7 to the end of October.
            Guess October 27 and 24:00 transitions. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)
            For future years, guess April's last Thursday to October's last
            Thursday except for Ramadan.

          Changes affecting past time stamps

            Locations while uninhabited now use '-00', not 'zzz', as a
            placeholder time zone abbreviation. This is inspired by Internet
            RFC 3339 and is more consistent with numeric time zone
            abbreviations already used elsewhere. The change affects several
            arctic and antarctic locations, e.g., America/Cambridge_Bay before
            1920 and Antarctica/Troll before 2005.

            Asia/Baku's 1992-09-27 transition from +04 (DST) to +04 (non-DST) was
            at 03:00, not 23:00 the previous day. (Thanks to Michael Deckers.)

          Changes to code

            zic now outputs a dummy transition at time 2**31 - 1 in zones
            whose POSIX-style TZ strings contain a '<'. This mostly works
            around Qt bug 53071 <https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-53071>.
            (Thanks to Zhanibek Adilbekov for reporting the Qt bug.)

          Changes affecting documentation and commentary

            tz-link.htm says why governments should give plenty of notice for
            time zone or DST changes, and refers to Matt Johnson's blog post.

            tz-link.htm mentions Tzdata for Elixir. (Thanks to Matt Johnson.)

        Subject: [tz] [tz-announce] 2016f release of tz code and data available

        The 2016f 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 future time stamps

             The Egyptian government changed its mind on short notice, and
             Africa/Cairo will not introduce DST starting 2016-07-07 after all.
             (Thanks to Mina Samuel.)

             Asia/Novosibirsk switches from +06 to +07 on 2016-07-24 at 02:00.
             (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.)

           Changes to past and future time stamps

             Asia/Novokuznetsk and Asia/Novosibirsk now use numeric time zone
             abbreviations instead of invented ones.

           Changes affecting past time stamps

             Europe/Minsk's 1992-03-29 spring-forward transition was at 02:00 not 00:00.
             (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.)
