+ Briefly:
+ Fiji observes DST from 2019-11-10 to 2020-01-12.
+ Norfolk Island starts observing Australian-style DST.
+
+ Changes to future timestamps
+
+ Fiji's next DST transitions will be 2019-11-10 and 2020-01-12
+ instead of 2019-11-03 and 2020-01-19. (Thanks to Raymond Kumar.)
+ Adjust future guesses accordingly.
+
+ Norfolk Island will observe Australian-style DST starting in
+ spring 2019. The first transition is on 2019-10-06. (Thanks to
+ Kyle Czech and Michael Deckers.)
+
+ Changes to past timestamps
+
+ Many corrections to time in Turkey from 1940 through 1985.
+ (Thanks to Oya Vulaş via Alois Treindl, and to Kıvanç Yazan.)
+
+ The Norfolk Island 1975-03-02 transition was at 02:00 standard
+ time, not 02:00 DST. (Thanks to Michael Deckers.)
+
+ South Korea observed DST from 1948 through 1951. Although this
+ info was supposed to appear in release 2014j, a typo inadvertently
+ suppressed the change. (Thanks to Alois Treindl.)
+
+ Detroit observed DST in 1967 and 1968 following the US DST rules,
+ except that its 1967 DST began on June 14 at 00:01. (Thanks to
+ Alois Treindl for pointing out that the old data entries were
+ probably wrong.)
+
+ Fix several errors in pre-1970 transitions in Perry County, IN.
+ (Thanks to Alois Triendl for pointing out the 1967/9 errors.)
+
+ Edmonton did not observe DST in 1967 or 1969. In 1946 Vancouver
+ ended DST on 09-29 not 10-13, and Vienna ended DST on 10-07 not
+ 10-06. In 1945 Königsberg (now Kaliningrad) switched from +01/+02
+ to +02/+03 on 04-10 not 01-01, and its +02/+03 is abbreviated
+ EET/EEST, not CET/CEST. (Thanks to Alois Triendl.) In 1946
+ Königsberg switched to +03 on 04-07 not 01-01.
+
+ In 1946 Louisville switched from CST to CDT on 04-28 at 00:01, not
+ 01-01 at 00:00. (Thanks to Alois Treindl and Michael Deckers.)
+ Also, it switched from CST to CDT on 1950-04-30, not 1947-04-27.
+
+ The 1892-05-01 transition in Brussels was at 00:17:30, not at noon.
+ (Thanks to Michael Deckers.)
+
+ Changes to past time zone abbreviations and DST flags
+
+ Hong Kong Winter Time, observed from 1941-10-01 to 1941-12-25,
+ is now flagged as DST and is abbreviated HKWT not HKT.
+
+ Changes to code
+
+ leapseconds.awk now relies only on its input data, rather than
+ also relying on its comments. (Inspired by code from Dennis
+ Ferguson and Chris Woodbury.)
+
+ The code now defends against CRLFs in leap-seconds.list.
+ (Thanks to Brian Inglis and Chris Woodbury.)
+
+ Changes to documentation and commentary
+
+ theory.html discusses leap seconds. (Thanks to Steve Summit.)
+
+ Nashville's newspapers dueled about the time of day in the 1950s.
+ (Thanks to John Seigenthaler.)
+
+ Liechtenstein observed Swiss DST in 1941/2.
+ (Thanks to Alois Treindl.)
