Oracle VM Bug Fix Advisory OVMBA-2016-0080

The following updated rpms for Oracle VM 3.2 have been uploaded to the 
Unbreakable Linux Network:



Description of changes:

- Rebase to 2016d
   - America/Caracas switches from -0430 to -04 on 2016-05-01 at 02:30.
   - Asia/Magadan switches from +10 to +11 on 2016-04-24 at 02:00.
   - New zone Asia/Tomsk, split off from Asia/Novosibirsk.  It covers
     Tomsk Oblast, Russia, which switches from +06 to +07 on 2016-05-29
     at 02:00.

- Rebase to 2016c
   - Azerbaijan no longer observes DST.
   - Chile reverts from permanent to seasonal DST.

- Rebase to 2016b
   - New zones Europe/Astrakhan and Europe/Ulyanovsk for Astrakhan and
     Ulyanovsk Oblasts, Russia, both of which will switch from +03 to +04 on
     2016-03-27 at 02:00 local time.  They need distinct zones since their
     post-1970 histories disagree.  New zone Asia/Barnaul for Altai Krai and
     Altai Republic, Russia, which will switch from +06 to +07 on the 
same date
     and local time.  The Astrakhan change is already official; the 
others have
     passed the first reading in the State Duma and are extremely likely.
     Also, Asia/Sakhalin moves from +10 to +11 on 2016-03-27 at 02:00.
   - As a trial of a new system that needs less information to be made up,
     the new zones use numeric time zone abbreviations like "+04"
     instead of invented abbreviations like "ASTT".
   - Haiti will not observe DST in 2016.
   - Palestine's spring-forward transition on 2016-03-26 is at 01:00, 
not 00:00.
     Guess future transitions will be March's last
     Saturday at 01:00, not March's last Friday at 24:00.

- Rebase to 2016a
   - America/Cayman will not observe daylight saving this year after all.
     Revert our guess that it would.
   - Asia/Chita switches from +0800 to +0900 on 2016-03-27 at 02:00.
   - Asia/Tehran now has DST predictions for the year 2038 and later,
     to be March 21 00:00 to September 21 00:00.  This is likely better
     than predicting no DST, albeit off by a day every now and then.
