        Description

        [Thu Nov 24 02:09:07 UTC 2016]
        The 2016j 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:

           Briefly: Saratov, Russia moves from +03 to +04 on 2016-12-04.

           Changes to future time stamps

             Saratov, Russia switches from +03 to +04 on 2016-12-04 at 02:00.
             This hives off a new zone Europe/Saratov from Europe/Volgograd.
             (Thanks to Yuri Konotopov and Stepan Golosunov.)

           Changes to past time stamps

             The new zone Asia/Atyrau for Atyraū Region, Kazakhstan, is like
             Asia/Aqtau except it switched from +04/+05 to +05/+06 in spring
             1999, not fall 1994. (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.)

           Changes to past time zone abbreviations

             Asia/Gaza and Asia/Hebron now use "EEST", not "EET", to denote
             summer time before 1948. The old use of "EET" was a typo.

           Changes to code

             zic no longer mishandles file systems that lack hard links, fixing
             bugs introduced in 2016g. (Problems reported by Tom Lane.)
             Also, when the destination already contains symbolic links, zic
             should now work better on systems where the 'link' system call
             does not follow symbolic links.

           Changes to documentation and commentary

             tz-link.htm now documents the relationship between release version
             numbers and development-repository commit tags. (Suggested by
             Paul Koning.)

             The 'Theory' file now documents UT.

             iso3166.tab now accents "Curaçao", and commentary now mentions
             the names "Cabo Verde" and "Czechia". (Thanks to Jiří Boháč.)

            When can we have this TZdata change for Jan CPU release ? Jan CPU builds are getting closer to ZBB.
            ZBB date is Dec 20, 2016 and after that only stopper fixes will be included as per schedule.
