Description
2013d TZdata
-------------------

The 2013d release of the tz code and data is available.  It reflects
the following changes circulated on the tz mailing list:

  Changes affecting future time stamps:

    Morocco's midsummer transitions this year are July 7 and August 10,
    not July 9 and August 8. 

    Israel now falls back on the last Sunday of October.

  Changes affecting past time stamps:

    Specify Jerusalem's location more precisely; this changes the pre-1880
    times by 2 s.

  Changing affecting metadata only:

    Fix typos in the entries for country codes BQ and SX.

  Changes affecting code:

    Rework the code to fix a bug with handling Australia/Macquarie on
    32-bit hosts (thanks to Arthur David Olson).

    Port to platforms like NetBSD, where time_t can be wider than long.

    Add support for testing time_t types other than the system's.
    Run 'make check_time_t_alternatives' to try this out.
    Currently, the tests fail for unsigned time_t;
    this should get fixed at some point.

  Changes affecting documentation and commentary:

    Deemphasize the significance of national borders.

    Update the zdump man page.

    Remove obsolete NOID comment .

    Update several URLs and comments in the web pages.

    Spelling fixes.

    Update URL for CLDR Zone->Tzid table.

Comments
Justification: we should ship JDK with latest tzdata version. Tests run and are green
