Summary: TZInfo v0.0.2 Released
Project: TZInfo

Version 0.0.2 of TZInfo has been released (based on version 2005m of the underlying tz data). Changes in this release:

* Country and Timezone data is now loaded into class rather than instance variables. This makes Timezone links more efficient and saves memory if creating specific Timezone and Country classes directly.
* TimezonePeriod zone_identifier is now defined as a symbol to save memory (was previously a string).
* TimezonePeriod zone_identifiers that were previously '' are now :Unknown.
* Timezones and Countries can now be returned using and When passed an identifier, the new method calls get to return an instance of the specified timezone or country.
* Added new class methods to Timezone to return sets of zones and identifiers.

Thanks to Scott Barron of Lunchbox Software for the suggestions in his article about using TZInfo with Rails (

GEM, zip and tar.gz files can be found at You can use 'gem update' to upgrade if you already tzinfo installed.
