Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2014-06-10

Details

Updated tzdata packages that add several enhancements are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

The tzdata packages contain data files with rules for various time zones.

This update contains all the changes implemented in tzdata-2014c
and tzdata-2014d, including the following enhancements:

* The Egyptian government decided that Egypt will observe daylight saving
time (DST) in 2014, starting on May 15 at 24:00. The DST period will be
interrupted during Ramadan. The respective tzdata rules have been updated
to reflect this change.

* The zic time zone compiler can now generate correct time zone transitions
for minimal time values, and thus generates files with valid time stamps.

(BZ#1099889, BZ#1102771)

All users of tzdata are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
add these enhancements.
