The following packages have been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* tzcode	2022e
* tzdata	2022e

The Time Zone Database (often called tz, tzdb, or zoneinfo) contains
data that represents the history of local time for many locations around
the world, and supports conversion of UTC time to local time at those
locations to allow display of those local times. It is updated
periodically to reflect changes made by political bodies to summer
daylight saving time rules, UTC offsets, and time zone boundaries.
The tzcode package provides the tzselect, zdump, and zic utilities.

Release 2022e	2022-10-11


* Jordan and Syria switch from +02/+03 with DST to year-round +03.

Changes to future timestamps

* Jordan and Syria are abandoning the DST regime and are changing to
  permanent +03, so they will not fall back from +03 to +02 on

Changes to past timestamps

* On 1922-01-01 Tijuana adopted standard time at 00:00, not 01:00.

Changes to past time zone abbreviations and DST flags

* The temporary advancement of clocks in central Mexico in summer
  1931 is now treated as daylight saving time, instead of as two
  changes to standard time.
