The files...
...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."

EVALUATION Tzdata2007h was released. (BugID: 6611886) That will be integrated to jdk7 as well as tzdata2007g.

SUGGESTED FIX Webrev : http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/i18n_data/7/6595137/

EVALUATION Should be integrated to jdk 7.

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.
