This update includes the changes in tzdata 2019a. Notable changes are:

  • Palestine started DST on 2019-03-30, instead of 2019-03-23 as previously predicted.
  • Metlakatla ended its observance of Pacific standard time, rejoining Alaska Time, on 2019-01-20 at 02:00.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 2019a-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tzdata packages.
