The 2016b release of the tz code and data is available. It reflects the following changes, which were either circulated on the tz mailing list or are relatively minor technical or administrative changes. A last-minute note: some 2016b data entries cause zic implementations derived from tz releases 2005j through 2015e to issue warnings like "time zone abbreviation differs from POSIX standard (+03)". These warnings should not otherwise affect zic's output and can safely be ignored on today's platforms, as the warnings refer to a restriction in POSIX.1-1988 that was removed in POSIX.1-2001. One way to suppress the warnings is to upgrade to zic derived from tz releases 2015f and later.
