Fedora Update Notification
2016-03-20 22:04:03.376288

Name        : tzdata
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 2016b
Release     : 1.fc23
URL         : https://www.iana.org/time-zones
Summary     : Timezone data
Description :
This package contains data files with rules for various timezones around
the world.

Update Information:

- Rebase to 2016b   - New zones Europe/Astrakhan and Europe/Ulyanovsk for
Astrakhan and     Ulyanovsk Oblasts, Russia, both of which will switch from +03
to +04 on     2016-03-27 at 02:00 local time.  They need distinct zones since
their     post-1970 histories disagree.  New zone Asia/Barnaul for Altai Krai
and     Altai Republic, Russia, which will switch from +06 to +07 on the same
date     and local time.  The Astrakhan change is already official; the others
have     passed the first reading in the State Duma and are extremely likely.
Also, Asia/Sakhalin moves from +10 to +11 on 2016-03-27 at 02:00.   - As a trial
of a new system that needs less information to be made up,     the new zones use
numeric time zone abbreviations like "+04"     instead of invented abbreviations
like "ASTT".   - Haiti will not observe DST in 2016.   - Palestine's spring-
forward transition on 2016-03-26 is at 01:00, not 00:00.     Guess future
transitions will be March's last Saturday at 01:00, not March's     last Friday
at 24:00.
