(tz) Support tzdata2016i



    • b145
    • Verified



        The 2016i 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: Cyprus split into two time zones on 2016-10-30, and Tonga
           reintroduces DST on 2016-11-06.

           Changes to future time stamps

             Pacific/Tongatapu begins DST on 2016-11-06 at 02:00, ending on
             2017-01-15 at 03:00. Assume future observances in Tonga will be
             from the first Sunday in November through the third Sunday in
             January, like Fiji. (Thanks to Pulu  ĽAnau.) Switch to numeric
             time zone abbreviations for this zone.

           Changes to past and future time stamps

             Northern Cyprus is now +03 year round, causing a split in Cyprus
             time zones starting 2016-10-30 at 04:00. This creates a zone
             Asia/Famagusta. (Thanks to Even Scharning and Matt Johnson.)

             Antarctica/Casey switched from +08 to +11 on 2016-10-22.
             (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)

           Changes to past time stamps

             Several corrections were made for pre-1975 time stamps in Italy.
             These affect Europe/Malta, Europe/Rome, Europe/San_Marino, and

             First, the 1893-11-01 00:00 transition in Italy used the new UT
             offset (+01), not the old (+00:49:56). (Thanks to Michael

             Second, rules for daylight saving in Italy were changed to agree
             with Italy's National Institute of Metrological Research (INRiM)
             except for 1944, as follows (thanks to Pierpaolo Bernardi, Brian
             Inglis, and Michael Deckers):

               The 1916-06-03 transition was at 24:00, not 00:00.

               The 1916-10-01, 1919-10-05, and 1920-09-19 transitions were at
               00:00, not 01:00.

               The 1917-09-30 and 1918-10-06 transitions were at 24:00, not

               The 1944-09-17 transition was at 03:00, not 01:00. This
               particular change is taken from Italian law as INRiM's table,
               (which says 02:00) appears to have a typo here. Also, keep the
               1944-04-03 transition for Europe/Rome, as Rome was controlled by
               Germany then.

               The 1967-1970 and 1972-1974 fallback transitions were at 01:00,
               not 00:00.

           Changes to code

             The code should now be buildable on AmigaOS merely by setting the
             appropriate Makefile variables. (From a patch by Carsten Larsen.)
