Description
The 2014a 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:

  Changes affecting near-future time stamps

    Turkey begins DST on 2014-03-31, not 03-30.  (Thanks to Faruk Pasin
    for the heads-up, and to Tim Parenti for simplifying the update.)

  Changes affecting past time stamps

    Fiji ended DST on 2014-01-19 at 02:00, not the previously-scheduled
    03:00.  (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)

    Ukraine switched from Moscow to Eastern European time on 1990-07-01
    (not 1992-01-01), and observed DST during the entire next winter.
    (Thanks to Vladimir in Moscow via Alois Treindl.)

    In 1988 Israel observed DST from 04-10 to 09-04, not 04-09 to
    09-03.  (Thanks to Avigdor Finkelstein.)

  Changes affecting code

    An uninitialized-storage bug in 'localtime' has been fixed.
    (Thanks to Logan Chien.)

  Changes affecting the build procedure

    The settings for 'make check_web' now default to Ubuntu 13.10.

  Changes affecting commentary and documentation

    The boundary of the US Pacific time zone is given more accurately.
    (Thanks to Alan Mintz.)

    Chile's 2014 DST will be as predicted.  (Thanks to Jose Miguel
    Garrido.)

    Paraguay's 2014 DST will be as predicted.  (Thanks to Carlos Raul
    Perasso.)

    Better descriptions of countries with same time zone history as
    Trinidad and Tobago since 1970.  (Thanks to Alan Barrett for
    suggestion.)

    Several changes affect tz-link.htm, the main web page.

      Mention Time.is (thanks to Even Scharning) and WX-now (thanks to
      David Braverman).

      Mention xCal (Internet RFC 6321) and jCal.

      Microsoft Windows 8.1 and later support tz database names.

      CLDR data is available in both XML and JSON form.

      Mention Maggiolo's map of solar vs standard time.  (Thanks to
      Arthur David Olson.)

      Mention TZ4Net.  (Thanks to Matt Johnson.)

      Mention the timezone-olson Haskell package.

      Mention zeitverschiebung.net.  (Thanks to Martin Jaeger.)

      Remove moribund links to daylight-savings-time.info and to Simple
      Timer + Clocks.

      Update two links.  (Thanks to Oscar van Vlijmen.)

      Fix some formatting glitches, e.g., remove random newlines from
      abbr elements' title attributes.
