As reported in 
<http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2015-September/022672.html>, that 
change is in the experimental tzdata version on Github, as it was 
mentioned in the Turkish press as early as September 8.  I've held off 
on an official release because as far as we knew the Turkish government 
hadn't yet announced the change, and there was still a possibility that 
the whole thing was in trial-balloon stage.  However, news articles 
published in the last 24 hours indicate that the decision has now been 
published in the official gazette (T.C. Resmi Gazete).  Although my 
Turkish isn't good enough to navigate through the official gazette's 
website, I'm becoming inclined to put out a new tzdata release soon, 
based on what's in the experimental version now.
