The 2014e 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
Egypt's 2014 Ramadan-based transitions are June 26 and July 31 at 24:00.
(Thanks to Imed Chihi.) Guess that from 2015 on Egypt will temporarily
switch to standard time at 24:00 the last Thursday before Ramadan, and
back to DST at 00:00 the first Friday after Ramadan.
Similarly, Morocco's are June 28 at 03:00 and August 2 at 02:00. (Thanks
to Milamber Space Network.) Guess that from 2015 on Morocco will
temporarily switch to standard time at 03:00 the last Saturday before
Ramadan, and back to DST at 02:00 the first Saturday after Ramadan.
Changes affecting past time stamps
The abbreviation "MSM" (Moscow Midsummer Time) is now used instead of
"MSD" for Moscow's double daylight time in summer 1921. Also, a typo
"VLASST" has been repaired to be "VLAST" for Vladivostok summer time
in 1991. (Thanks to Hank W. for reporting the problems.)
Changes affecting commentary
tz-link.htm now cites RFC 7265 for jCal, mentions PTP and the
draft CalDAV extension, updates URLs for TSP, TZInfo, IATA, and
removes stale pointers to World Time Explorer and WORLDTIME.
