New Daylight Savings Time in US

P: n/a
I heard that the Daylight Savings time in the US will change. Will PHP
deal with this automatically?

Best regards,

Only if the operating system does it correctly.

Only if the timezone has been updated since the shift in DST dates.

$ rpm -qa timezone
timezone-2.4-7.......

I dunno which older version of timezone first included the shift in DST dates.

I run debian and it depends on the libc6 package:

I found this article for anyone interested:

https://agora.cs.uiuc.edu/display/ts...+Linux+systems

I run debian sarge and it is OK according to this page.

dpkg -l libc6 shows I have version 2.3.2.ds1-22sa

Thanks for your help!
