Version 0.1.2 of TZInfo has been released (based on version 2006a of the
underlying tz data).

GEM, zip and tar.gz files can be found at
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=894. You can use 'gem update' to
upgrade if you already tzinfo installed.

Changes in this release:

* Add lib directory to the load path when tzinfo is required. Makes it 
easier to use tzinfo gem when unpacked to vendor directory in rails.

* Updated to tzdata version 2006a 

* build_tz_classes rake task now handles running svn add and svn delete 
as new timezones and countries are added and old ones are removed.

* Return a better error when attempting to use a Timezone instance that 
was constructed with Timezone.new(nil). This will occur when using 
Rails' composed_of. When the timezone identifier in the database is 
null, attempting to use the Timezone will now result in an 
UnknownTimezone exception rather than a NameError.
