Update to tzdata2015c: Release 2015c - 2015-04-11 08:55:55 -0700 Changes affecting future time stamps Egypt's spring-forward transition is at 24:00 on April's last Thursday, not 00:00 on April's last Friday. 2015's transition will therefore be on Thursday, April 30 at 24:00, not Friday, April 24 at 00:00. Similar fixes apply to 2026, 2037, 2043, etc. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.) Obtained from: ftp://ftp.iana.org/tz/releases/
