daylight saving time redux

Back in May, the New Zealand government changed the official start and end dates of Daylight Saving Time (I wrote about this back then). Today is the first day of the new improved official NZDT and sure enough, everything that is supposed to automatically change to DST, hasn't.

If you live in New Zealand and use Mac OS X, Apple hasn't provided a software fix to change the dates. I've installed Glenn Anderson's New Zealand 2007 daylight savings update for Mac OS X and it appears to work fine.

If you live in New Zealand and use FreeBSD, I found a patch that fixes zoneinfo. That patch also appears to work fine.
