    Is there any information from Microsoft about a patch for Argentina's
    Daylight Saving observance? They begin to observe Daylight Saving THIS
    SUNDAY, 12/30.

    Here's a link with more detailed information:
    http://www.timeanddate.com/news/time/argentina-into-daylight-saving-time.html

    The Daylight Saving blog (http://blogs.technet.com/dst2007/) seems to be the
    logical place Microsoft would announce something about that, but the blog
    hasn't been updated since October 29th, and has no information about
    Argentina.

    I know there is a way to create a custom time zone in Windows with "tzedit"
    but it would be a lot better and simpler implementationwise for my company's
    Argentinian customers to supply them with an official Microsoft patch.

    Thanks in advance for whatever assistance anyone can provide.

    Thanks for the link, but I went through the list of changes and it looks like
    the Argentina change isn't reflected. Furthermore, the Argentina government
    made the announcement Dec 21, and that update was dated Dec 20. Looks like
    Microsoft hasn't published an update yet, but I'd like to be able to find
    some kind of official confirmation of that fact, one way or the other.
