The 2018c release of the tz code and data is available. It follows on the 2018a and 2018b releases, which were published but were not announced until now, due to problems discovered late in their release processes. 2018a had a build-failure typo, and 2018a and 2018b both had problems with ICU and Java, downstream packages which do not support a feature (negative DST offsets) used in 2018a and 2018b. The typo has been fixed, and data changes using negative DST offsets have been reverted pending development of a mechanism to export data to platforms lacking support for such data.

The 2018a through 2018c releases reflect the following changes, which were either circulated on the tz mailing list or are relatively minor technical or administrative changes. This announcement has merged the set of changes made by the three releases, to make it easier to see the difference between 2017c and 2018c; please see the 2018c NEWS file for more details about intermediate versions.
