Subject: Updated: tzcode, tzdata 2020d
X-CMAE-Envelope: MS4xfCFBoYi3A+r/ZwyLQ1Llu9DQgwG3t1PB1eiWL8anT8Y2Yv0CNaGjKBLuUX46CSN1Nl16VBcIRneiQ4s2vAumhMxKfqol52ZlWCWSskomA5CahJeH87po

The following packages have been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* tzcode 2020d
* tzdata 2020d

The Time Zone Database (often called tz, tzdb, or zoneinfo) contains
data that represents the history of local time for many locations around
the world, and supports conversion of UTC time to local time at those
locations to allow display of those local times.
It is updated periodically to reflect changes made by political bodies
to daylight saving (summer time) rules, UTC offsets, and time zone

The tzcode package provides the tzselect, zic, zdump utilities.

For more information, see the announcement or below:

Release 2020d - 2020-10-21 11:24:13 -0700

News for the tz database

    Palestine ends DST earlier than predicted, on 2020-10-24.

  Changes to past and future timestamps

    Palestine ends DST on 2020-10-24 at 01:00, instead of 2020-10-31
    as previously predicted (thanks to Sharef Mustafa.)  Its
    2019-10-26 fall-back was at 00:00, not 01:00 (thanks to Steffen
    Thorsen.)  Its 2015-10-23 transition was at 01:00 not 00:00, and
    its spring 2020 transition was on March 28 at 00:00, not March 27
    (thanks to Pierre Cashon.)  This affects Asia/Gaza and
    Asia/Hebron.  Assume future spring and fall transitions will be on
    the Saturday preceding the last Sunday of March and October,

News for the tz utilities

    Minor technical build changes.
