Unreleased, experimental changes

Changes affecting future time stamps

New zone Europe/Astrakhan for Astrakhan Oblast, Russia, which will
switch from 3 to 4 hours ahead of UTC on 2016-03-27 at 02:00.
(Thanks to Alexander Krivenyshev for the heads-up.)
As a trial of a new system that needs less information to be made up,
the new zone uses numeric time zone abbreviations like "+04"
instead of invented abbreviations like "ASTT".
