Date: Mon, 20 Aug 2007 10:53:18 -0400

The files...
	ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzcode2007g.tar.gz
...and...
	ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata2007g.tar.gz
...are now available. These reflect the changes circulated on the time
zone mailing list last week by Paul Eggert; the "leapseconds" file has
been updated to incorporate the most recent International Earth Rotation
and Reference Systems Service (IERS) bulletin; and there's an addition
to tz-art.htm regarding the television show "Medium."

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

Changes in tzdata2007g:

* Egypt switches the September 7, not September 28.

* Daviess, Dubous, Knox, Martin, and Pike Counties, Indiana, switch
  from central to eastern time in November.  This results in a zone
  split, and a new entry America/Tell_City is created for Perry County,
  which does not switch zones in November.

* South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, and New South Wales are changing
  their DST rules effective next year.  DST will end the first Sunday in
  April at 03:00 and start the first Sunday in October at 03:00.  Lord Howe
  Island has a similar change.

* Several Antarctic station's rules weren't properly updated to account
  for this year's change to the New Zealand daylight saving rules.
