Thanks.  I hadn't tried it myself so wasn't aware of that detail.


Is there a list somewhere correlating ICU release to TZ release version?

I don't believe this will work, because current versions of ICU do not build
with 2013i due to the removal of the solar* zones. You will need to wait
until ICU is updated to work with the latest TZ data.


In general, about half of TZ updates require changes in ICU.

If you don't want to wait for Apple to release an update, you can try to
follow these directions:




This post was written for an older release, so make sure you are getting the
latest versions of both tzdata and ICU


http://www.iana.org/time-zones   (2013i)

http://www.opensource.apple.com/tarballs/ICU/  (511.25)


You *will* need to follow step 4a to compile it.


If anyone knows of any easier or more official way of updating OSX, please
let me know.  It sure would be nice if they just had a tzdata package to
update like most Linux distros.
