New version of my DT:TZ rewrite. CPAN-style tarball at
Public git repo at
I believe this version resolves all the issues that people raised with
1.900. Comments welcome, of course.
There remain a couple of problems with current tzfiles that show up when
they're used through DT:TZ:Tzfile:
$ olson list 'o@now!?' o@now k
Patches for zic are pending with the Olson folks. This blocks switching
to the rewrite, because it would be a regression, because current DT:TZ
(because it doesn't use tzfiles) doesn't suffer these zic bugs.
Also need to sort out how Time::OlsonTZ::Data is going to be handled
by Debian et al. I think I'll need to distribute it in two forms, one
with precompiled tzfiles (for platform portability) and one bundling
tzcode/tzdata (for source editability).
