        The 2019c 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:

             Fiji observes DST from 2019-11-10 to 2020-01-12.
             Norfolk Island starts observing Australian-style DST.

           Changes to future timestamps

             Fiji's next DST transitions will be 2019-11-10 and 2020-01-12
             instead of 2019-11-03 and 2020-01-19. (Thanks to Raymond Kumar.)
             Adjust future guesses accordingly.

             Norfolk Island will observe Australian-style DST starting in
             spring 2019. The first transition is on 2019-10-06. (Thanks to
             Kyle Czech and Michael Deckers.)

           Changes to past timestamps

             Many corrections to time in Turkey from 1940 through 1985.
             (Thanks to Oya Vulaş via Alois Treindl, and to Kıvanç Yazan.)

             The Norfolk Island 1975-03-02 transition was at 02:00 standard
             time, not 02:00 DST. (Thanks to Michael Deckers.)

             South Korea observed DST from 1948 through 1951. Although this
             info was supposed to appear in release 2014j, a typo inadvertently
             suppressed the change. (Thanks to Alois Treindl.)

             Detroit observed DST in 1967 and 1968 following the US DST rules,
             except that its 1967 DST began on June 14 at 00:01. (Thanks to
             Alois Treindl for pointing out that the old data entries were
             probably wrong.)

             Fix several errors in pre-1970 transitions in Perry County, IN.
             (Thanks to Alois Triendl for pointing out the 1967/9 errors.)

             Edmonton did not observe DST in 1967 or 1969. In 1946 Vancouver
             ended DST on 09-29 not 10-13, and Vienna ended DST on 10-07 not
             10-06. In 1945 Königsberg (now Kaliningrad) switched from +01/+02
             to +02/+03 on 04-10 not 01-01, and its +02/+03 is abbreviated
             EET/EEST, not CET/CEST. (Thanks to Alois Triendl.) In 1946
             Königsberg switched to +03 on 04-07 not 01-01.

             In 1946 Louisville switched from CST to CDT on 04-28 at 00:01, not
             01-01 at 00:00. (Thanks to Alois Treindl and Michael Deckers.)
             Also, it switched from CST to CDT on 1950-04-30, not 1947-04-27.

             The 1892-05-01 transition in Brussels was at 00:17:30, not at noon.
             (Thanks to Michael Deckers.)

           Changes to past time zone abbreviations and DST flags

             Hong Kong Winter Time, observed from 1941-10-01 to 1941-12-25,
             is now flagged as DST and is abbreviated HKWT not HKT.

           Changes to code

             leapseconds.awk now relies only on its input data, rather than
             also relying on its comments. (Inspired by code from Dennis
             Ferguson and Chris Woodbury.)

             The code now defends against CRLFs in leap-seconds.list.
             (Thanks to Brian Inglis and Chris Woodbury.)

           Changes to documentation and commentary

             theory.html discusses leap seconds. (Thanks to Steve Summit.)

             Nashville's newspapers dueled about the time of day in the 1950s.
             (Thanks to John Seigenthaler.)

             Liechtenstein observed Swiss DST in 1941/2.
             (Thanks to Alois Treindl.)

        Here are links to the release files:


        Links are also available via plain HTTP, and via FTP from
        ftp://ftp.iana.org/tz/releases with the same basenames as above.

        PS. If your tzdata parser does not yet support negative DST offsets or times
        past 24:00, this release's data entries can be turned into a rearguard-format
        tarball that does not use these features. This is intended to be a temporary
        transition aid for these parsers. To generate a rearguard-format tarball, obtain
        the full distribution as described above, and run the command 'make
        rearguard_tarballs' on a development host. Or you can run 'make rearguard.zi' to
        generate a single file that can be fed directly to a parser that works like 'zic'.
