It has been "official" with http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_3166-1_newsletter_vi-
8_split_of_the_dutch_antilles_final-en.pdf, available from 

The change was committed twenty-eight hours ago into the FreeBSD Project head 
(http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/head/share/misc/iso3166?view=log) and now is causing a minor 
headache there because tzsetup cannot find AN :-P

Looking forward to get this data also in sync with reality!
