The 2016c release of the tz code and data is available. Its most urgent change is for Asia/Baku, where the update takes effect this weekend.

This release reflects the following changes, which were either circulated on the tz mailing list or are relatively minor technical or administrative changes:

  Changes affecting future time stamps

    Azerbaijan no longer observes DST. 

    Chile reverts from permanent to seasonal DST.  
    Guess that future transitions are August's and May's second
    Saturdays at 24:00 mainland time.  Also, call the period from
    2014-09-07 through 2016-05-14 daylight saving time instead of
    standard time, as that seems more appropriate now.

  Changes affecting past time stamps

    Europe/Kaliningrad and Europe/Vilnius changed from +03/+04 to
    +02/+03 on 1989-03-26, not 1991-03-31.  Europe/Volgograd changed
    from +04/+05 to +03/+04 on 1988-03-27, not 1989-03-26.

  Changes to commentary

    Several updates and URLs for historical and proposed Russian changes.
