Last spring, we wrote several articles regarding the new Daylight Savings Time change, and how Windows Mobile and Windows CE were affected. This weeks Windows Updates patches include a new update to the Daylight Savings Time rules for the PC. From the linked article, the following updates were made:
Updates from the previous cumulative Windows time zone update
The following changes have been made since the previous Windows cumulative time zone update, described in KB article 931836:
• Caucasus Standard Time
Changes display name to Caucasus Standard Time as cities in the previous display name have separate time zones, and removes DST settings.
• Armenian Standard Time
Creates a new time zone for Armenia to better align with different DST changes in the Caucasus region.
• New Zealand Standard Time
Adjusts DST start dates and end dates according to changes signed in to law after the prior cumulative time zone update was created (February 2007).
• GTB Standard Time
Corrects the display name for GTB Standard Time on Windows Server 2003 SP2 to include Bucharest.
• Jordan Standard Time
Adjusts DST start times, end times, and dates according to changes signed in to law after the prior cumulative time zone update was created (February 2007).
There is also a corresponding update to the Windows Mobile Daylight Savings Time update, but it is not obvious. Visit the Windows Mobile Updates for Daylight Saving Time page, read the instructions, and download the Daylight Saving Time 2007 Update Tool for Windows Mobile. You will note that this tool is the 'Fall 2007 update'.
This new version of the tool incorporates all of the changes in the original update, plus the changes listed above.
