I would like to inform, that New Zealand changed DST rules and new timezone files are available. See http://www.dia.govt.nz/diawebsite.nsf/wpg_URL/Services-Daylight-Saving-Daylight-saving-to-be-extended

Patch for head attached. I kept zic.c untouched, but I think it would be nice to update it as well.


Are there any updated release scheduled 8.0-8.2?

  # The 1994-04-03 transition is from Shanks & Pottenger.
  # Shanks & Pottenger report no DST after 1998-04; go with IATA.

+ # While the entire country changes its time, Katima Mulilo and other
+ # settlements in Caprivi unofficially will not because the sun there
+ # rises and sets earlier compared to other regions.  Chief of
+ # Forecasting Riaan van Zyl explained that the far eastern parts of
+ # the country are close to 40 minutes earlier in sunrise than the rest
+ # of the country.
+ # 
+ # From Paul Eggert (2007-03-31):
+ # Apparently the Caprivi Strip informally observes Botswana time, but
+ # we have no details.  In the meantime people there can use Africa/Gaborone.
