Description

This update adds the following enhancements :

The Chilean Government is extending the period of Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the year 2013 until April the 27th. Then, Chile Standard Time (CLT) and Easter Island Standard Time (EAST) will be in effect until September the 7th when switching again to DST.
