The timezones in Sunbird 0.3.1 have been updated to include the Daylight Savings Time (summer time) changes passed by the U.S. legislature in 2005.

“Windows Users Note:

IMPORTANT: Install the updated timezones for Windows. Information on obtaining the updated timezones can be found here. Not updating your Windows timezones will result in unreliable and erroneous display and entry of time data! Be sure to do this!
