Release 2021b - 2021-09-24 16:23:00 -0700

Briefly:

  • Jordan now starts DST on February's last Thursday.
  • Samoa no longer observes DST.
  • Merge more location-based Zones whose timestamps agree since 1970.
  • Move some backward-compatibility links to 'backward'.
  • Rename Pacific/Enderbury to Pacific/Kanton.
  • Correct many pre-1993 transitions in Malawi, Portugal, etc.
  • zic now creates each output file or link atomically.
  • zic -L no longer omits the POSIX TZ string in its output.
  • zic fixes for truncation and leap second table expiration.
  • zic now follows POSIX for TZ strings using all-year DST.
  • Fix some localtime crashes and bugs in obscure cases.
  • zdump -v now outputs more-useful boundary cases.
  • tzfile.5 better matches a draft successor to RFC 8536.
  • A new file SECURITY.

This release is prompted by recent announcements by Jordan and Samoa. It incorporates many other changes that had accumulated since 2021a. However, it omits most proposed changes that merged all Zones agreeing since 1970, as concerns were raised about doing too many of these changes at once. It does keeps some of these changes in the interest of making tzdb more equitable one step at a time; see "Merge more location-based Zones" below.
