Sorry, I don't know when Oracle will update their copy of tzdb. If you're an 
Oracle customer (I'm not) you might ask them directly.

Possibly Oracle is waiting for Brazil to confirm that they are indeed canceling 
DST, since Brazil's President Bolsonaro said last month that he might change his 
mind and keep DST after all. See:
