Liz Cortell writes in with important updates to your time modules:
Whether travelling, calling overseas or maintaining software, time zones are always a headache. DateTime::TimeZone has seen a couple of changes this month.
0.70, released December 3, was changed to incorporate Hugo Chavez's declaration of a new time zone for Venezuela.
0.71, released today, "Fixes a major bug in the generation of time zone data. This bug affected any time zone that has more than one rule (most of them) and currently has no DST changes (many of them). An example would be America/Caracas. The symptom would either be mistakes about the current time zone or bogus exceptions when trying to create a local date."
