Dear users of tzdb,

IERS has announced a new leap second at the end of year 2016, see


Another point:

I have myself written a time library in Java called Time4J which 
contains a tz compiler based on your data and which also evaluates the 
leap second file contained in tz-data. Hence this library could be 
listed in the file "tz-link" within the section "Other tz compilers" 
maybe with this description:

<a href="https://github.com/MenoData/Time4J/">Time4J – Advanced 
date, time and interval library for Java</a> , uses the class

<code>net.time4j.tool.TimezoneRepositoryCompiler.java</code> located in 
TZTool-module that compiles

<code><abbr>tz</abbr></code> source into a Time4J-specific binary 
format.  Time4J is available under a LGPLv2.1-licence.

Cheers and thanks for your very useful work
