Thanks for this information; I hadn't noticed any news about this yet. As the person who has handled this in the past couple of years, I will modify the Chile entry in the database as soon as possible (hopefully by the end of the day) and post a patch. The database maintainers are free to hold the patch out of the database until the change becomes official.
Note that according to item (4) in the posted notice, this is yet another "temporary" change that will be reevaluated AGAIN in 2013.

> As stated in the website of the Chilean Energy Ministry (http://www.minenergia.cl/ministerio/noticias/generales/gobierno-anuncia-fechas-de-cambio-de.html), The Chilean Government has decided to postpone the entrance into winter time (to leave DST) from March 11 2012 to April 28th 2012. The decision has not been yet formalized but it will within the next days.
