This update includes the changes in tzdata 2018i. Notable changes are:

  • Qyzylorda, Kazakhstan moved from +06 to +05 on 2018-12-21. A new zone Asia/Qostanay has been added, because Qostanay, Kazakhstan didn't move.
  • Metlakatla, Alaska observes PST this winter only.
  • São Tomé and Príncipe switched from +01 to +00 on 2019-01-01.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 2018i-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tzdata packages.
