Thanks for the heads-up. Unfortunately this was not much notice, as the 
change occurred less than 45 minutes after you sent your email, and this 
was before I read the email. So the proposed tzdb patch (attached) is 
for both past and future timestamps.

Did Qostanay (also known as Kostanay or Қостанай) also change? The 
proposed patch assumes Qostanay did not change, as this is what Google 
Translate implies from the URL you sent. But if this is incorrect and 
Qostanay also changed, that would make the patch smaller as we can then 
avoid creating a special Zone entry for Qostanay.

I suppose we'll need a new tzdb release soon for this.
