Description
Date: Mon, 24 Mar 2008 08:37:25 -0400

The file...	
	ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata2008b.tar.gz
...is now available; this reflects the changes circulated last week on
the time zone mailing list (including renaming Asia/Calcutta to
Asia/Kolkata, with a backward link provided).

It's the season for changes, and I'm still hoping to get good
documentation on what happened in Venezuela earlier this year, so expect
a tzdata2008c.tar.gz fairly soon.

EVALUATION

tzdata2008b involves some time zone ID changes.

EVALUATION

I'm closing this RFE (for JDK7) as "will not fix" because tzdata2008c was released.
The RFE id for tzdata2008c is 6707643.

Tzdata2008b has been integrated into 6-open(b09), 6u7, 5.0u16, 1.4.2_18, and 1.3.1_23.
Tzdata2008c will be integrated into later JDK versions.
