…r.gz Summary of changes in tzdata2014f (2014-08-05 17:42:36 -0700): * Russia will subtract an hour from most of its time zones on 2014-10-26 at 02:00 local time. There are some exception. * The following new zones are added to deal with changes in Russia: Asia/Chita and Asia/Srednekolymsk. * Australian eastern time zone abbreviations are now AEST/AEDT not EST, and similarly for the other Australian zones. * Asia/Novokuznetsk shifts from NOVT to KRAT (remaining on UTC+7) effective 2014-10-26 at 02:00 local time. * The time zone abbreviation for Xinjiang Time (observed in Ürümqi) has been changed from URUT to XJT. * Prefer MSK/MSD for Moscow time in Russia, even in other cities. * Change time zone abbreviations in (western) Samoa to use "ST" and "DT" suffixes, as this is more likely to match common practice. * America/Metlakatla now uses PST, not MeST, to abbreviate its time zone. * Time zone abbreviations have been updated for Japan's two time zones used 1896-1937. * China's five zones have been simplified to two, since the post-1970 differences in the other three seem to have been imaginary. The zones Asia/Harbin, Asia/Chongqing, and Asia/Kashgar have been removed; backwards-compatibility links still work, albeit with different behaviors for time stamps before May 1980. Asia/Urumqi's 1980 transition to UTC+8 has been removed, so that it is now at UTC+6 and not UTC+8. * Some zones have been turned into links, when they differed from existing zones only for older UTC offsets where the data were likely invented. The affected zones are: Africa/Bamako, Africa/Banjul, Africa/Conakry, Africa/Dakar, Africa/Freetown, Africa/Lome, Africa/Nouakchott, Africa/Ouagadougou, Africa/Sao_Tome, and Atlantic/St_Helena. This also affects the backwards-compatibility link Africa/Timbuktu. * Asia/Shanghai's pre-standard-time UT offset has been changed from 8:05:57 to 8:05:43, the location of Xujiahui Observatory. Its transition to standard time has been changed from 1928 to 1901. * Asia/Taipei switched to JWST on 1896-01-01, then to JST on 1937-10-01, then to CST on 1945-09-21 at 01:00, and did not observe DST in 1945. In 1946 it observed DST from 05-15 through 09-30; in 1947 from 04-15 through 10-31; and in 1979 from 07-01 through 09-30. * Asia/Riyadh's transition to standard time is now 1947-03-14, not 1950. * Europe/Helsinki's 1942 fall-back transition was 1942-10-04 at 01:00, not 1942-10-03 at 00:00. * Pacific/Pago_Pago has been changed from UTC-11:30 to UTC-11 for the period from 1911 to 1950. * Pacific/Chatham has been changed to New Zealand standard time plus 45 minutes for the period before 1957, reflecting a 1956 remark in the New Zealand parliament. * Europe/Budapest has several pre-1946 corrections. * Africa/Accra is now assumed to have observed DST from 1920 through 1935. * Time in Russia before 1927 or so has been corrected by a few seconds in the following zones: Europe/Moscow, Asia/Irkutsk, Asia/Tbilisi, Asia/Tashkent, Asia/Vladivostok, Asia/Yekaterinburg, Europe/Helsinki, and Europe/Riga. * A new file 'zone1970.tab' supersedes 'zone.tab' in the installed data. The new file's extended format allows multiple country codes per zone. The older file is still installed but is deprecated; its format is not changing and it will still be distributed for a while, but new applications should use the new file. * The file 'iso3166.tab' is planned to switch from ASCII to UTF-8. It is still ASCII now, but commentary about the switch has been added. * Changes affecting documentation and commentary.
