Oracle Linux Bug Fix Advisory ELBA-2018-1339

http://linux.oracle.com/errata/ELBA-2018-1339.html

The following updated rpms for Oracle Linux 6 have been uploaded to the
Unbreakable Linux Network:

i386:
tzdata-2018e-3.el6.noarch.rpm
tzdata-java-2018e-3.el6.noarch.rpm

x86_64:
tzdata-2018e-3.el6.noarch.rpm
tzdata-java-2018e-3.el6.noarch.rpm


SRPMS:
http://oss.oracle.com/ol6/SRPMS-updates/tzdata-2018e-3.el6.src.rpm



Description of changes:

[2018e-3]
- Update the tzdata.tar.gz file and make the tzdata.zi file during prep.

[2018e-2]
- Rebase to tzdata-2018e
- North Korea changed from UTC+8:30 to UTC+9 on May 5, 2018.
- In this update, the upstream project now defaults to using
the "vanguard" data implementation which includes negative DST offsets.
However, we are continuing to provide the "rearguard" format
for data which does not use negative DST offsets to provide
better compatibility with existing tools. We intend to transition
to the "vanguard" data implementation in the future.
