Changes from tzdata2012j to tzdata2013a:

   Change affecting binary data format:

     The zone offset at the end of version-2-format zone files is now
     allowed to be 24:00, as per POSIX.1-2008.  (Thanks to Arthor David Olson.)

   Changes affecting current and future time stamps:

     Chile's 2013 rules, and we guess rules for 2014 and later, will be
     the same as 2012, namely Apr Sun>=23 03:00 UTC to Sep Sun>=2 04:00 UTC.
     (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen and Robert Elz.)

     New Zones Asia/Khandyga, Asia/Ust-Nera, Europe/Busingen.
     (Thanks to Tobias Conradi and Arthur David Olson.)

   Many changes affect historical time stamps before 1940.
   These were deduced from: Milne J. Civil time. Geogr J. 1899
   Feb;13(2):173-94 <>.

Changes from tzdata2012j to tzdata2013a:

   Changes affecting current and future time stamps:

     Haiti uses US daylight-saving rules this year, and presumably future years.
     This changes time stamps starting today.  (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)

     Paraguay will end DST on March 24 this year.
     (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)  For now, assume it's just this year.

     Morocco does not observe DST during Ramadan;
     try to predict Ramadan in Morocco as best we can.
     (Thanks to Erik Homoet for the heads-up.)

   Changes affecting commentary:

     Update URLs in tz-link page.  Add URLs for webOS, BB10, iOS.
     Update URL for Solaris.  Mention Internet RFC 6557.
     Update Internet RFCs 2445->5545, 2822->5322.
     Switch from FTP to HTTP for Internet RFCs.
